Qatar on Syria on “WEOG” Agenda Friday, After UN's Feltman, E. European Q

By Matthew Russell Lee, Scoop

UNITED NATIONS, April 26 -- The UN's Political Affairs chief Jeffrey Feltman is meeting today with the Western European and Other Group, WEOG in UN parlance. Then WEOG meets with Qatar about its draft General Assembly resolution on Syria. Some find this of note.

  As Inner City Press first reported, Qatar and Saudi Arabia have run into opposition to aspects of their draft resolution, particularly its positive treatment of recognitions received by the Syrian opposition.

  Inner City Press obtained and exclusively published the letters to Qatar from six Latin American countries, India and South Africa (IBSA) and Malaysia.

  What will WEOG have to say to Qatar, in terms of getting a “yes” count high enough to merit putting it to the vote in General Assembly? Would would Feltman have to say?

  In fairness, Feltman and DPA have been asked to brief about the special political mission; Inner City Press has learned the Feltman will brief the Eastern European group on Monday. Will Qatar go and brief Eastern Europeans as well? Watch this site.
