(C) On July 18, Poloff delivered Reftel talking points to
Peerasak Chantavarin, Director of the Social Division of the
Department of International Organizations (IO), Ministry of
Foreign Affairs. Peerasak said that the IO Department would
hold a meeting later this week to coordinate Thai policy
concerning overall UN reform. He noted that no consensus had
been reached yet on how Thailand would vote on the proposed
membership of G-4 countries on the UN Security Council. He
commented that Thailand's "regional allies," India and China,
were exerting pressure on Thailand to support the resolution,
but that Thailand shared the US concern for ensuring only
qualified members be allowed membership on the UNSC. We also
know that the Japanese have been pressing their case at a
high level here in Bangkok.
