1. (U) Per reftel, EmbOff delivered demarche and delivered nonpaper
expressing U.S. concern regarding the number of UNGA resolutions
reflecting an anti-Israel bias. Demarche was delivered to Ms.

Organizations Department of the Government of Jamaica (GOJ)'s
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade (MFAFT) on the
morning of November 24. In recent years, Jamaica has consistently
voted in favor of such resolutions; Lewis advised Emboff that these
votes are often intended to maintain collegial relations within the
Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), and are not necessarily indicative of
substantive support for the resolutions. Post will relay any
substantive response.
