TAGS: PHUM PREL RP
SUBJECT: PHILIPPINES ON HRC FIFTH SESSION ISSUES

REF: A. STATE 80095

¶B. INGENERI/BELLARD EMAIL

Classified By: Pol/C Scott Bellard, reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)

¶1. (C) Poloff on June 15 discussed U.S. views on Human
Rights Council issues (ref a) with Gunther Sales, Assistant
Director in the Department of Foreign Affairs’ Office of
United Nations and International Organizations. He
highlighted U.S. priorities regarding preserving
country-specific rapporteur mandates and avoiding anti-Israel
permanent agenda items in the Human Rights Council’s Fifth
Session.

¶2. (C) Sales said that the Philippines had already reached
its official position on the rapporteur mandates, but
declined to specify what it was. (The Philippines has in the
more recent past been more willing to consider these on a
case-by-case basis.) He indicated that the Philippine
delegation in Geneva would likely finalize the Philippine
position on the Israel-specific permanent agenda item, and he
promised to convey our views to it.
