REF: SECSTATE 82967

 

(U) Poloff delivered reftel talking points to Peerasak

Chantavarin, Director of the Social Division, International

Organizations Department, Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA).

He immediately forwarded the points to the Thai Embassy in

Geneva. However, Peerasak said that the Royal Thai

Government (RTG) has not yet established a final position on

formation of a working group in Geneva to discuss reform of

the UN Human Rights Commission. He refused to speculate how

Thailand would vote on the proposed resolution establishing a

working group if it is presented to a formal meeting of the

UN Economic and Social Council (ESOSOC). Peerasak said that

the MFA is still listening and weighing different points of

view on the issue. Poloff pressed and Peerasak conceded the

point that reform of the UN Human Rights Commission will

eventually have to be settled in New York.
