REF: A. STATE 236869
B. STATE 237932
Emboff, drawing on reftel points, spoke on November 8 to Jane Connolly, Department of Foreign Affairs 3rd Secretary for Russia, Eastern Europe, & Central Asia and Leah Hoctor from the Human Rights Section. Connolly and Hoctor stated that the GOI, in support of the EU Common Position, would certainly vote against the Belarusian UN Resolution on Democracy and Human Rights in the US as it was clearly a political maneuver without any real substance. In addition, Connolly explained that as a member of the EU, the GOI would definitely support the EU-supported resolutions on Turkmenistan, Sudan, Zimbabwe, and Iran, and Belarus. Hoctor also said that they expected the resolution on Burma to be adopted by consensus with the GOI's full support. KENNY
