¶1.  (SBU)  PolOff delivered reftel points to MFA Director for 
Multilateral Affairs Svetlana Geleva and Deputy Director for 
Multilateral Affairs Sanja Zografska-Krteska on September 10. 
 Geleva reported that due to budget shortfalls, she, as a 
MFA's main UNGA subject matter expert, would not be attending 
as part of the Macedonian delegation. She said that MFA's 
Director for Collective Security Zoran Dabic will attend 
(before departing for Vienna as Macedonia's Ambassador to 
OSCE) and support President Ivanov and Foreign Minister 
Milososki. 
 
¶2.  (SBU)  Geleva and Zografska-Krteska warmly received 
reftel points, and expressed their support for and enthusiasm 
about the recent election of the U.S. to the Human Rights 
Council, our re-engagement in multi-lateral issues expressed 
in the reftel points, and the U.S. commitment to the UN 
embodied our paying arrears and meeting our financial 
obligations to the UN in full.  Geleva noted that Macedonia 
can be expected to co-sponsor resolutions on human rights 
violations in Iran, DPRK and Burma, and to vote with the U.S. 
or EU throughout the UNGA. Geleva indicated that Macedonia 
supports the U.S. position not to change the current assessed 
ceiling rate of 22%.
