SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED TO NAM/G-77 ON UN REFORM

REF: STATE 83898



1. (SBU) On May 25, Poloff delivered reftel demarche points
on UN reform at the upcoming Non-Aligned Movement (NAM)
Ministerial-level meeting to the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs's UN-I Director, Imran Siddiqui. Having recently
served at Pakistan's Permanent Mission to the UN in New York
and well versed on UN reform, Mr. Siddiqui commented that as
co-chair on the UN's committee for management reform the
Government of Pakistan (GOP) works closely with the USG and
is apprised of its views. Siddiqui said that as co-chair the
GOP understands its obligation to work towards a compromise
on contentious issues; at the same time, the GOP also has a
national position on UN management reform, including on
specific issues on the use of information technology,
financing peacekeeping operations, and human resources. He
said the GOP had tried to avoid voting for the May 8 vote
that adopted the G-77 resolution, but because the divide
between western countries and the G-77 was so wide, Pakistan
did not have a choice.



2. (SBU) On the upcoming NAM meeting, Siddiqui thought the
topic of UN reform would not come up. This issue had been
discussed before, with the NAM issuing an outcome document in
which a chapter broadly touched on institutional reform at
the UN. He did not believe that delegations would be eager
to touch on this issue again this time around.
