Classified By: Ambassador William J. Burns.  Reasons: 1.4(B/D). 
 
(C)  The Ambassador delivered reftel demarche to DFM Sergey 
Kislyak on February 8.  Poloff double-tracked the same points 
with MFA UN Political Affairs Section Chief Vladimir 
Safronkov.  Kislyak noted that the GOR had already been 
approached by both Venezuela and Guatemala regarding the 
GRULAC's 2007-2008 UNSC representation.  The Russian 
position, Kislyak said, is generally to support the regional 
group's consensus candidate.  Safronkov echoed the same view 
and added that the MFA had referred both countries back to 
their regional group without expressing support for either.
