SUBJECT: COSTA RICA ON REPORTING IRAN TO THE UNSC

REF: STATE 6236

Classified By: Amb. Mark Langdale for reason 1.4 (b&d)

(C) The Ambassador and visiting A/DAS David Lindwall
delivered reftel demarche to Foreign Minister Tovar on
January 17. Tovar agreed with and claimed to share all of
our concerns regarding Iran's serious breach of its
commitments. Tovar said Iran's public rhetoric reveals the
true character of its leaders as people "willing to do
anything." Tovar also agreed on the need to make public
statements in support of reporting Iran to the UNSC, but he
stopped short of actually committing to do anything more than
consult with UN Permrep Bruno Stagno on when/how such
statements could be made. We left the points as a nonpaper
and will follow up at lower levels to try to ensure that a
public statement is forthcoming.
