SUBJECT: IRELAND SUPPORTS UN HUMAN RIGHTS RESOLUTIONS

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.
