PEACEBUILDING COMMISSION

REF: STATE 130530


1. (SBU) On July 15, Acting Econ-Pol Counselor delivered
reftel talking points and draft resolutions to Peter Huber in
the MFA's International Organizations Division. Huber said
the GoA supported the creation of a UN Peacebuilding
Commission along the lines of the USG proposal. The EU also
wanted to establish the commission by the end of 2005. Huber
noted that the USG resolutions were well written and should
form the basis for moving the initiative forward. Huber
pointed out that such a commission would provide an ideal
forum for the various governments -- P-5, and donor and
contributor nations -- to focus on peacebuilding in a
particular country. The European Commission, in Huber's
opinion, should receive a seat in the Core Group, as it is an
important donor in many post-conflict situations.
