IO/UNP FOR ANDREW MORRISON

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL PGOV SF
SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: UNGA RESOLUTIONS WITH
ANTI-ISRAEL BIAS

REF: STATE 118799

1. Embassy Pretoria has received no feedback from the South
African government regarding reftel points. On November 19
the text of the talking points was formatted as a non-paper,
scanned, and emailed to Megan Govender, Deputy Director of
the UNGA desk within the multilateral unit of the Department
of International Relations and Cooperation (DIRCO). Poloff
called Govender the following day and gave a brief synopsis
of the demarche. Govender suggested he confer with his
colleagues and relay any relevant views on November 23. The
lack of a call suggests the SAG is unchanged in its current
stance, which has been to support resolutions censuring
Israel. Post will relay any future developments.
