SUBJECT: NEPAL NONCOMMITTAL ON OPPOSING UNGA RESOLUTIONS
WITH ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS

REF: STATE 159386

On November 28 Emboff urged Mani Bhattarai, Section Officer
for UN and International Organizations at the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs (MFA), to advise the Government of Nepal's
delegation to the UN in New York to vote against or abstain
from voting for three UN General Assembly resolutions with
anti-Israel bias. Bhattarai asked whether a formal
diplomatic note would be forthcoming from the United States
on this issue. He then said that the MFA would consider the
request but could not say whether Nepal would oppose the
resolutions.
