Viewing cable 09THEHAGUE668,

If you are new to these pages, please read an introduction on the structure of a cable as well as how to discuss them with others. See also the FAQs

Understanding cables
Every cable message consists of three parts:
  • The top box shows each cables unique reference number, when and by whom it originally was sent, and what its initial classification was.
  • The middle box contains the header information that is associated with the cable. It includes information about the receiver(s) as well as a general subject.
  • The bottom box presents the body of the cable. The opening can contain a more specific subject, references to other cables (browse by origin to find them) or additional comment. This is followed by the main contents of the cable: a summary, a collection of specific topics and a comment section.
To understand the justification used for the classification of each cable, please use this WikiSource article as reference.

SUBJECT: NETHERLANDS/GOLDSTONE: SAME REDLINES AS IN GENEVA

ΒΆB. THE HAGUE 615 

Classified By: PolEcon Counselor Andrew C. Mann for reasons 1.5(b,d) 

(C) Post conveyed reftel A points to key MFA staff covering 
the Middle East, the UN, and human rights. Lex Gerts, Deputy 
Head of the Human Rights Division, said the Dutch would apply 
the same redlines they used in Geneva to determine their vote 
on UNGA resolutions concerning the Goldstone report -- 
supporting the primary role of the Human Rights Council in 
evaluating the report, letting the parties conduct their own 
internal investigations, and permitting time for those 
investigations to take place. A deadline for further action 
or review would be appropriate in 5-6 months, as contemplated 
in the previous compromise to defer consideration of the 
report until March 2010. A deadline of 3 months would be too 
early. Gerts emphasized that the Dutch parliament fully 
supports this approach. (Note: The parliament's support 
follows a compromise reached within the governing coalition, 
reftel B, allowing the Dutch to oppose the Goldstone 
resolution at the Human Rights Council. End Note.)
