Viewing cable 10THEHAGUE117, NETHERLANDS TO ABSTAIN ON PALESTINIANS' GOLDSTONE

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.

Discussing cables

RESOLUTION 

REF: STATE 15722 

EMBOFFS delivered reftel points to Mr. Peter van der Vliet, 
Deputy Director of the Dutch MFA's UN and International 
Financial Institutions Department. Van der Vliet advised 
that the Netherlands intends to abstain in the February 26 
vote in the UN General Assembly on the Palestinian-drafted 
resolution on the Goldstone Report. He said other EU member 
states who are like-minded on the issue will similarly 
abstain but noted that it looks like quite a number of EU 
members will vote in favor. While he said that things 
could change depending on the outcome of last-minute EU 
coordination efforts, the Netherlands will, in any case, 
not/not vote in favor of the resolution.
