SUBJECT: GEORGIA LIKELY TO SUPPORT CUBA EMBARGO RESOLUTION

REF: SECSTATE 148506

Per reftel request, Poloff delivered talking points to
Alexander Nalbandov, Director of the International
Organizations Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Nalbandov said that Georgia shares the EU position in favor
of removal of the embargo and will support the resolution.
When pressed, he said that he would consult with Ministry
officials to see whether Georgia could abstain from voting,
but noted that Georgia has traditionally voted for the
resolution in the past, and it was unlikely Georgia would
abstain.
