SUBJECT: KAZAKHSTAN:  AMBASSADOR DELIVERS DEMARCHE ON UNGA 
THIRD COMMITTEE HUMAN RIGHTS RESOLUTIONS 
 
REF: STATE 117901 
 
Classified By: Ambassador Richard Hoagland, Reasons 1.4 (b) and (d) 
 
1. (C) The Ambasassador delivered reftel demarche encouraging 
support for UNGA Third Committee human rights resolutions on 
Iran, North Korea, and Burma to Deputy Foreign Minister 
Kairat Sarybay on November 12.   The Ambassador requested 
that Kazakhstan once again support the North Korea and Burma 
resolutions, as it had done last year.  He also urged that 
Kazakhstan abstain or not be present for the vote on a 
no-action motion on the Iranian resolution, rather than 
voting in favor, as in previous years.  He further asked that 
Kazakhstan support the Iranian resolution itself, rather than 
voting against it, which it had done last year.  The 
Ambassador gave Sarybay a non-paper with additional details 
and requested that the Kazakhstani government inform us of 
its voting intentions as soon as possible.  Sarybay promised 
that the MFA would review our request and provide a 
substantive response expeditiously.
