(SBU) Pol/Econ Counselor spoke with Ababew Feleke, chief of
MFA's Directorate of International Organizations, on February
26 regarding the Goldstone Report. Feleke said Ethiopia's
position on the vote would be determined by its New York
Mission to the United Nations. Given that Ethiopia abstained
on the last vote, Ababew's own view was that a further
Ethiopian abstention was likely.
