EUMM reported no overnight incidents and Georgian Interior Ministry concurs.

We are still seeking solid confirmation of all this and conveying messages to parties but with things moving in

To all -- the message below is from Jordanian Foreign Minister Nasser Judeh. Maura Connelly and I had dinner with him
by the headline put on Matthew Lee's AP piece on Judeh's visit. (The headline said that
last night, and
Judeh rejected U.S. approach to Middle East peace; the story itself was fine.)

Madam Secretary,
You did a really fine job on Meet the Press today. The Russia, Iran, Afghanistan and Asia points were all right
on the mark. And even though it goes beyond my professional scope, the second half was just as good. Enjoy

Madam Secretary,
Just a quick note before leaving for Moscow, Rome and Central Asia.
Moscow preparations are in reasonable shape. Afghan lethal transit agreement is
done, and will be signed on Monday. There's also a broader statement on
cooperation on counter-narcotics and reconstruction in Afghanistan. (Bakiyev
has now sianed the Manas aareement. which is a further boost on Afahanistan

I'll be in Rome just for the first, "foreign policy" portion of the G8. We're
working on a Leaders' statement that is likely to look a lot like last week's G8
Foreign Ministers statement on most issues, with an update on North Korea, and
essentially the same, firm line on Iran.
I leave Rome on July 9 with an interagency delegation for stops in Kazakhstan,

Hillary:
Below and attached is a note on CTBT Conference. After reviewing, see if you think it makes sense for you to
attend. We do and have vetted the idea with others. Of note is that this would be on 24 Sept after the President
has chaired the Non-Proliferation Security Council Meeting so it will be amplifying his remarks. We also will
have to think through, if you do this, what the Hill angle is but we think there is a good case to be made for it so
we will want to discuss with you this week.

3. What message S would deliver in her remarks; and
4. Any other info you think would be helpful in making a decision

The fourth round of voting for a new UNESCO head takes place today and the fifth and final tomorrow. Only
two candidates remain Hosni and Bokova of Bulgaria. The Europeans are supporting Bokova and 10 believes at

Congressional Issues

1.4(D)
B1

Mike Polt reported that six nominees are on deck to come up for a vote tonight Hormats, Posner, Feinstein
(Poland), Jacobson (Canada), White (Norway) and Solomont (Spain). Hormats will attend the G-20 if confirmed.

Jim said that he had spoken to Senator DeMint about holds on Valenzuela and Shannon. DeMint did not say
anything negative about either nominee, but will insist on a full floor discussion as the price of a vote. (He sees
no prospect Zelaya will come back into power in Honduras.) H will follow up to see what more can be done to
engage with DeMint on the substance of his concerns. Cheryl noted that if we are not going to make any
additional movement soon, we should proceed to a floor vote. The issue then will be how much time DeMint
demands.

South Africa

Pat reported that our embassy in Pretoria is closed today pending a beef-up in local security. They have taken
other measures to increase security.

Honduras

In Honduras, Pat noted that the mission is also closed and that, despite the proximity of our mission to the
Brazilian things seem fine. I noted that there were reports this morning that police had fired tear gas to break
up a demonstration. WHA reported in the subsequent meeting that we have urged the de facto regime to act
with restraint and not use force. We are also waiting for a readout of a meeting between Zelaya's supporters
and de facto regime members that took place last night. Jim indicated he wanted to call everyone together later
to review our strategy going forward.

Subject: Lebanon has a cabinet
Hariri just announced the formation of a cabinet. It's divided 15-10-5 (15 ministers with March 14, 10
ministers with March 8, 5 ministers with President Sleiman). The ones of most concern to us -- Defense (our
help to LAF), Interior (help to police plus municipal elections), Justice (Hariri Tribunal), Finance (can veto
anything because of financial implications) are all either with March 14 or Presidency. That's good. Foreign .
Affairs is with a new guy from Nabih Berri's bloc.
with Lebanon rotating onto the Security Council.
Next step: Hariri and his cabinet have 30 days to come up with the ministerial declaration, basically a
platform, that must be presented to the Parliament along with the cabinet slate for a vote of confidence. This,
too, may be painful, as they debate how to describe "the resistance" in ways that don't cross either U.S. or
Hizballah red lines.

TBD
Purpose of Call: To obtain the Government of Argentina's recognition of
Honduras' November 29 elections and to request that Argentina support a
"politically binding" agreement in Copenhagen.
Iran: We appreciate your principled support on the IAEA Board of Governors
resolution on Iran. A strong, unified signal to Iran is vital as we continue to
move forward. We hope Argentina will also join us in combating the shared
global threat of nuclear terrorism and help advance nuclear security-related
efforts, such as the planning underway for President Obama's upcoming Global
Nuclear Security Summit and the longstanding nuclear security related work in
the IAEA.
Honduras: We believe strongly in the need to send a decisive signal about the
return of democratic and constitutional order in the wake of the June 28 coup

Reason: 1.4(B), 1.4(D), B1 Declassify on: 11/27/2024

We all agree that military coups must remain part of our past. We have
remained firm on that principle and have acted upon our convictions through
aid cutoffs and visa revocations.
We also believe that we must work to help Honduras move forward to restore
democratic and constitutional order. That is why we got involved to help
broker the Tegucigalpa-San Jose Agreement. We are working hard to help the
parties implement that agreement, including the December 2 congressional
deliberations on the matter of President Zelaya's restitution.
Elections are a vital part of the overall solution. The Honduran elections follow
the normal calendar established by the constitution. They got underway long
before the coup and involve candidates from a wide array of parties and
ideologies. The elections are being run not by the de facto regime, but by the
Supreme Electoral Tribunal, which was itself chosen before the coup.
We see the elections and the implementation of the Accord as part of a package.
I encourage you to also view the elections as a vital part of the democratic way
forward and to support the people of Honduras and their newly elected

-2government as they move forward to restore Honduras to a functioning
democracy as quickly as possible.

[If Raised: Zelaya must be returned to office for elections to be legitimate]:


The Accord called for the Congress to vote on his restitution expeditiously, and
we urge them to do that. It is critical that Honduras forge a government of
national unity before transferring power to the next president.
[If Raised: November 26 Supreme Court opinion on President Zelaya's
restitution]: The Supreme Court's opinion on President Zelaya's restitution is
a separate matter and has no relationship to the holding of elections. Elections
are a vital part of the solution and completely separate from the issue of
President Zelaya's restitution, as laid out in the Tegucigalpa-San Jose Accord
which President Zelaya signed.
Copenhagen Accord on Climate Change: The White House just announced
that, in the context of an overall deal in Copenhagen, the President is prepared
to put forward a U.S. emissions reduction target in the range of 17 percent
below 2005 levels in 2020. These targets represent levels 18 percent below
1990 by 2025 and 33 percent below 1990 by 2030, in line with final U.S.
legislation.
A successful outcome in Copenhagen is critical. Danish Prime Minister Lars
Rasmussen has proposed a "politically binding" operational agreement that
would cover all the main issues. We support this proposal, and hope you will,
too. It is not a substitute for a legal agreement, but will advance such an
agreement.
All countries, from the most vulnerable to those with greater capacity, would
benefit from getting started with a good deal that sets us on a path to avoid the
worst dangers of climate change, and provides new financing opportunities.
Success will require positive engagement by all. Argentina can make a real
difference exercising positive leadership and supporting the Danish proposal.
I understand Argentina has concerns about potential trade impacts. We are
working to ensure our climate policy will be consistent with our international
trade obligations under the World Trade Organization. Also, any border tax
