SUBJECT: ENGAGING INDONESIA ON RUSSIAN-SPONSORED UNGA
RESOLUTION ON CYBER-SECURITY

REF: STATE 107427

1. (U) This message is Sensitive but Unclassified -- Please
handle accordingly.

2. (SBU) SUMMARY: Mission reviewed reftel points with the
GOI, urging it to reject the proposed Russian UNGA First
Committee resolution on telecommunications and international
security. Department of Foreign Affairs contact promised to
review the USG position and provide us any substantive
reaction. Mission will also review the matter with GOI
agencies that handle telecommunications and cybersecurity
issues and report any reaction by septel. END SUMMARY.

3. (SBU) Poloff presented reftel demarche and nonpaper to
Andy Rachmianto, Deputy Director for International Security
and Nonproliferation at the Department of Foreign Affairs
(DEPLU), on October 10. Poloff noted that the proposed
Russian resolution would establish an ineffective mechanism
for addressing cyberthreats to international security. The
resolution would also allow repressive regimes to block the
free flow of ideas across national boundaries. As a country
committed to democracy and openness, Indonesia should oppose
the resolution.

4. (SBU) Rachmianto said that Indonesia did not yet have a
position on the issue. He promised that GOI officials would
review USG views and get back to us with any substantive
reaction.

5. (SBU) Mission will also review the matter with GOI
agencies that are responsible for telecommunications and
information technology issues and report any substantive
reaction by septel.
