E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: UNGA ETRD PHUM UN CU
SUBJECT: PHILIPPINES WILL CONTINUE ITS SUPPORT FOR UN RESOLUTION OPPOSING CUBA EMBARGO

REF: SECSTATE 148506

¶1. (SBU) Leah Ruiz, Director for the Department of Foreign
Affairs’ Office of United Nations and International
Organizations, told poloff that the Philippine Mission to the
United Nations will likely vote in favor of the annual
resolution that calls for an end to the U.S. trade embargo
against Cuba. To her knowledge, the Philippine government
has always voted in favor of the resolution. Per reftel,
poloff requested that the Philippine government consider
abstaining from the vote, which they have also not done, or
at least issue an explanation of their vote. Ruiz paid
careful attention to these options, but said she could not
commit on behalf of the Philippine Mission to the United
Nations. She believes Philippine support for the resolution
will continue to be strong, while support for the U.S. in all
other UN matters will also remain strong.
