REF: STATE 93916

Classified By: POL/C Scott Bellard for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)

¶1. (C) In a July 18 meeting with Leah Ruiz, Director in the
Department of Foreign Affairs’ Office of United Nations and
International Organizations, poloff requested Philippine
support for Ambassador Swing’s candidacy for Director General
of the International Organization for Migration (IOM)
(reftel) . Ruiz promised that the Philippines would fully
study Ambassador Swing’s qualifications, noting that official
U.S. backing adds considerable weight to Ambassador Swing’s
candidacy. However, Ruiz admitted that the Philippines’ push
for observer status in the Organization of the Islamic
Conference is often a factor in Philippine policy-making
calculations on such decisions, citing possible OIC support
for another candidate in this case.
