Classified By: Ambassador Ronald L. Schlicher; Reason 1.4 (b) and (d)

(C) On January 26, Ambassador made ref a points on UN reform
in a meeting with Cypriot FM George Iacovou. The Ambassador
stressed the high priority we placed on this issue and the
important role cooperation on UN reform could play in the
U.S.-Cyprus bilateral relationship. Iacovou noted his
considerable personal experience within the UN system, but
suggested that we meet separately with MFA PermSec Zakheous
and the MFA's UN experts to review the U.S. position
point-by-point. On some of the specific concerns, Iacovou
observed, Cyprus would be obligated to follow the EU
consensus. In other areas, however, Nicosia was free to
establish its own national position. We will follow up this
week with Zakheous' office.
