REF: A. STATE 36629

B. SAN JOSE 299



1. (SBU) In response to Ref A, and further to Ref B, the MFA
informed us on April 16 by diplomatic
note of the GOCR's intention to support the USG's candidacy
for a seat on the Human Rights Council for the period of
2009-2012.



2. (SBU) COMMENT: GOCR officials have previously urged the
USG to consider running for a seat on the Council, stating
that it would add balance to the Council's membership. As
such, Costa Rica's support is a welcome example of the GOCR
walking it's talk on this UN issue.
