1. (C) In a November 9 meeting with Foreign Minister Hassan
Wirajuda, Ambassador stressed the importance of vigorous
implementation of UN Security Council Resolution 1718, aimed
at stopping DPRK trafficking in military materiel and certain
luxury goods (reftels). Ambassador pointed out that because
of Indonesia's location on the Straits of Malacca, the GOI
must be in a position to undertake effective enforcement
action. This would, he said, require timely action in
response to intelligence. We must be focused on results, the
Ambassador said, and not be sidetracked into legalistic
discussions of the kind that have blocked progress on the
Proliferation Security Initiative (PSI).



2. (C) Wirajuda said that he had already discussed this issue
with President Yudhoyono, and explained to him that UNSCR
1718 was legally binding on all UN member states. Yudhoyono
had instructed Wirajuda to examine the resolution's
implications for Indonesia's bilateral trade with the DPRK.
Wirajuda said that it was his understanding that the UN was
devising guidelines for implementation of the resolution, and
the GOI was awaiting these. He admitted that there had been
little discussion of the matter within the GOI to date.



3. (C) Ambassador said that the GOI had shown itself capable
of cooperative action against narcotraffickers and
terrorists, and that this level of commitment would also be
required in enforcing the Resolution 1718. He said that in
the future, the USG would likely need to pass actionable
information to the GOI (ref B), and that we would like to
identify a responsive Indonesian point of contact for such
cases. Wirajuda said that the Foreign Ministry would do its
best to see that such information was coordinated within the
GOI in a timely manner. Ambassador stressed that enforcing
the resolution had many complex aspects, such as provision
maritime services to DPRK ships (ref C), that must be
addressed. We left with Wirajuda non-papers (refs B - C)
that we have already shared with working level contacts in
the Foreign Ministry (ref A).
