REF: SECSTATE 159386

1. (SBU) In response to reftel demarche delivered by Post, the
Mongolian Foreign Ministry informed us on November 29 that Mongolia
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
Note.)

2. (SBU) Mongolian President N.Enkhbayar is currently touring the
Middle East, with state visits to the United Arab Emirates, Kuwait
and Qatar. He is expected to return to Mongolia on December 1.
