SUBJECT: IRELAND BROADLY AGREES WITH US RESPONSE ON UNGA
FIRST DISARMAMENT COMMITTEE

REF: STATE 171382



1. Emboff, drawing on reftel points, spoke on September 2 to
First Secretary, UN Section at the DFA Julian Clare. Clare
stated that Ireland's response to Resolution 58/41 is
included in the common reply that the EU sent. Clare said
that Ireland has strong national views on nuclear disarmament
and nonproliferation, but on matters of reform and
revitalization, it will follow the EU's lead.



2. Clare said Ireland has a fair degree of commonality with
the US response; it supports the voting procedures followed
by Chairman Sareva in the 2003 session, better management of
speaking time, interactive discussions with experts, and
greater use of bi- or tri-annual resolutions.
