SUBJECT: SLOVAKIA WILL SUPPORT GUATEMALA FOR NON-PERMANENT
SEAT ON UNSC
REF: STATE 20173
Classified By: CDA a.i. Lawrence R. Silverman for Reasons 1.4 (B) and (
1. (C) Slovak MFA Director for UN and International
Organizations Roman Buzek and UNSC Coordinator Marcel Pesko
told us February 10 that Slovakia will support Guatemala for
the Group of Latin American Countries' non-permanent seat on
the UNSC (reftel). Buzek pointed out that -- in addition to
sharing USG views on Venezuela's membership -- Slovakia has a
reciprocal support agreement with Guatemala stipulating that
Slovakia will support Guatemala for UNSC membership in
exchange for Guatemala's support for Slovakia's ECOSOC
candidacy in 2009; Buzek said that Slovakia "likes to keep
its written agreements."
2. (C) Pesko asked us to provide "off the record" guidance
from Washington as to how the USG sees the October UNSC
election shaping up, as the MFA is interested in whether the
vote will divide Latin America. He voiced his concern that
the vote could have the effect of isolating Venezuela, and
"nobody wants another Cuba."
This website hosts an archive of all 251,287 US Embassy diplomatic cables that were released by WikiLeaks between November 28, 2010 and September 2, 2011.
While the cables are generally available at http://wikileaks.org/cablegate.html
, we find it hard to search or even navigate the site to read the cables.
We have made all 251,287 cables available here at Dazzlepod with the hope to make it easier for readers to browse, search, share and discuss about the released cables.
The cables are periodically selected and posted to our Twitter page
and Facebook page
for readers to review them.
