SUBJECT: SOMALI PIRACY: CROATIA STILL REVIEWING PROPOSED
RESOLUTION

REF: SECSTATE 130496

(SBU) On December 12, Poloff presented reftel demarche
regarding the draft UNSC resolution on Somali piracy to Vesna
Vukovic, head of the MFA's UN office. Vukovic said that
Croatia supported the new resolution to combat the rise of
piracy off the coast of Somalia, and they were still
reviewing the provisions regarding the use of force against
pirates on land. She took note of our position and said that
she would forward the U.S. views regarding the need for a
robust resolution to her colleagues in New York for
consideration. She also indicated that Croatia is
considering participating in the EU's European Security and
Defense Policy counter-piracy operation. (NOTE: We believe
this means by contributing one or two personnel to the
mission. END NOTE.)
