The Government of Morocco has informed the Embassy verbally
and via diplomatic note (e-mailed to NEA/MAG) of its
intention to present itself as a candidate for a seat on the
United Nations Security Council for 2012-13. The GOM has
requested early notification of support for its candidacy,
noting that it seeks to represent the Maghreb in accordance
with a rotational schedule worked out previously among the
six regional states. Thus far, 35 countries have confirmed
their support for Morocco's candidacy, according to the MFA.
Please advise how the Embassy should respond.
