E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PGOV PK PREL IS UNGA
SUBJECT: PAKISTAN: UNGA RESOLUTIONS WITH ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS

REF: SECSTATE 159386

On December 11, Poloff met with Mohammad Fawad Sher, the
Deputy Director for UN and International Organizations at the
Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA), to receive a readout of
the Pakistan vote on the UN General Assembly resolutions with
anti-Israel bias. Sher acknowledged our concerns (reftel
points), but confirmed that Pakistan, as it has done in
previous years, chose to vote in favor of the resolutions.
As the delegation had observed and passed to Sher, the voting
patterns on these resolutions had not changed appreciably.
