On May 5, Emboff delivered reftel to Department of Foreign 
Affairs Human Rights Unit Director Eamonn Mac Aodha.  Mac 
Aodha said that GOI opposes the unmandated session on the 
Commission on Human Rights (CHR) reform, calling it "clearly 
the wrong thing."  He added that the GOI regrets that the CHR 
adopted the resolution establishing the working group to 
reflect on the UN Secretary General's recommendations for 
reform. He said that the goal in current discussions in New 
York is to get enough votes to defeat the resolution and that 
right now, it is "close, but do-able."  He also stated that 
opposition to the resolution is predominantly shared among EU 
Member States and the EU would likely vote as a block to 
defeat the resolution.
