TAGS: PHUM AS NZ JA
SUBJECT: TRIPARTITE DEMARCHE DELIVERED ON UN DECLARATION ON
THE RIGHTS OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES

REF: STATE 078740

Classified By: Political Minister Counselor W. Michael Meserve. Reason
s:1.4(b/d).

¶1. (U) On May 23, Embassy Tokyo political officer joined
Embassy of New Zealand Deputy Head of Mission Michelle Slade
and Embassy of Australia First Secretary Catherine Wallace in
delivering a joint demarche to MOFA Global Issues Department
Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs Division Director
Tetsuya Kimura concerning the draft Declaration on the Rights
of Indigenous Peoples. Led, as instructed, by New Zealand’s
Slade, the tripartite delegation conveyed reftel talking
points and provided Kimura with copies of relevant documents.

¶2. (U) Kimura undertook to study the issue and to relay
U.S., Australian and New Zealand concerns to appropriate MOFA
and other agency officials. He promised shortly to provide a
Japanese government response. Kimura offered his opinion
that the subject text should be adopted on a consensus basis
and that the concerned governments should proceed cautiously.

¶3. (C) Taking advantage of the opportunity to discuss the
Human Rights Council, Kimura stated that while Japan wanted
to begin substantive discussions as soon as possible, the
Japanese government also believed there should be a concrete
discussion on the Council’s working methods in order to
establish a “road map” for the organization’s deliberations.
Japan is particularly interested in beginning discussions of
serious violations of human rights, especially North Korean
violations, at an early date. In that context, Kimura noted
that Japan would also use other fora, such as the Third
Committee in New York, for discussing North Korean and other
serious human rights violations.

¶4. (C) Kimura highlighted the need to discuss in the Human
Rights Council the issue of extending the mandates of Special
Rapporteurs. He stressed that “continuity” was an important
consideration for Japan.
