1. (C)  We delivered reftel points on Serbia's proposed 
referral of Kosovo independence to the ICJ to Zhanar 
Kulzhanova, Counselor in the MFA's International 
Organizations Department.  Kulzhanova told us that the GOK 
has not yet developed a position on the issue.  She reminded 
us that Kazakhstan has not recognized Kosovo's independence, 
and said that the GOK "could go either way" on an UNGA 
resolution requesting an ICJ advisory opinion.  Kulzhanova 
said USG views will be taken under consideration and promised 
to keep us updated as the GOK's position develops.
