SUBJECT: COSTA RICA RESPONSE TO UNHRC - CANDIDACY OF IRAN

REF: SECSTATE 66050

Classified By: Charge Russell L. Frisbie for reasons 1.4 (b)
and (d)

On the sidelines of a dinner hosted April 26 by the
Ambassador for the incoming cabinet, Foreign
Minister-designate and current U.N. Permanent Representative
Bruno Stagno confirmed that Costa Rica will oppose Iran's
candidacy for the Human Rights Council (the new government
will take office May 8 and all foreign policy instructions
are being vetted by the incoming minister). Stagno noted the
work underway in the Community of Democracies context and
expressed support for it, while noting the consensus-based,
decision-making nature of the Community. Costa Rica has yet
to define which countries it would support for the HRC, he
said.
