REF: STATE 123081

1. (SBU) On December 2, Pol-Econ Chief met with Chantal
Elsenhout, Acting Head of the International Organizations
Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) of the
Government of the Republic of Suriname (GOS). Pol-Econ Chief
asked Elsenhout if Suriname's memberships in the G-77 or OIC
would influence the GOS position on the resolutions. AS is
the standard GOS approach, Elsenhout responded that she did
not know if the GOS would go with a bloc vote on these
resolutions or make a decision on a case-by-case basis. That
said, she noted that this same issue of multiple resolutions
comes up annually, so she said MOFA would research the issue
as it warranted further discussion within the ministry.

2. (U) Post will report any subsequent response from MOFA in
a separate cable.
