SUBJECT: DELIVERED URGENT DEMARCHE: UNGA RESOLUTION ON UN
PALESTINIAN OBSERVER MISSION STATUS

REF: SECSTATE 92528

Classified By: Deputy Chief of Mission Alan G. Misenheimer
for reasons 1.5 (b and d)

(c) On 5/2, Pol/Econ Chief met with Ministry of Foreign
Affairs (MFA) First Secretary for International Affairs Ali
al-Aiashi to deliver reftel points, which were also sent to
the MFA on April 28 by facsimile. Al-Aiashi was familiar
with the message and asked several specific questions about
the U.S. position, including whether it was our view that the
draft resolution would establish "permanent status" for
Palestine. Pol/Econ Chief reiterated that attempts to define
territory under the guise of representation presented a risk
of pre-judging the outcome of Israel-Palestine negotiations
and set a questionable precedent. Al-Aiashi said he was
pleased that the U.S. supports a two-state outcome. He
explained that he had not yet received a draft resolution
from New York, but that once received he would pass it to the
Foreign Minister for review and substantive comment.
