E.O. 12958: DECL: 09/29/2014
SUBJECT: GOS TO SUPPORT CHINA ARMS EMBARGO
REF: STATE 208511
Classified By: DCM Scott N. Thayer for Reason 1.4(b)
1. (C) DCM discussed reftel with Ivan Korcok, State
Secretary of the MFA, Milan Jezovica, Foreign Policy Advisor
to PM Dzurinda, and Frantisek Ruzicka, Acting General
Director for European Affairs. Ruzicka was very well versed
in U.S. views (to the point of summarizing previous
demarche's talking points), but emphasized that Slovakia
would be looking for allies on this issue inside the EU,
specifically mentioning the UK and the Netherlands. However,
both Korcok and Jezovica were more resolute, stating that the
GOS will not support the lifting of the China arms embargo.
2. (C) Comment: At the working level, the GOS is looking for
cover under the leadership of other EU countries while at the
political level, a decision to support maintaining the arms
embargo has been made.
