will likely absent itself from votes on two upcoming anti-Israel
UNGA resolutions and abstain on a third. G.Batjargal, Counselor of
the MFA's Multilateral Cooperation Department, told us that Mongolia
intends to not be present for votes on two resolutions: the
Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the
Palestinian People, and the Division for Palestinian Rights within
the UN Secretariat. Batjargal said Mongolia will likely abstain on
a related resolution: the Special Committee to Investigate Israeli
Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Palestinian People and
Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories. (Note: In 2006, Mongolia
abstained or was absent for votes on these three resolutions. End
