SUBJECT: GEORGIA TO SUBMIT AN OFFICIAL NO VOTE FOR KOSOVO'S 
WORLD BANK MEMBERSHIP 
 
REF: A. A. SECSTATE 54944 
     B. B. BENNETT-OLSON E-MAIL 
 
1. (SBU) In response to the request contained ref A and 
Department concerns that a quorum will not be reached in the 
vote for Kosovo membership in the World Bank (WB), Post asked 
the Georgian Government to submit an official vote. 
Initially the GoG said it would abstain in the votes for 
Kosovo membership in both the WTO and WB in order to support 
U.S. efforts, but would not submit an official ballot.  In 
response to quorum concerns and at our behest, the GoG 
submitted a ballot in the vote for the WTO, but felt it had 
to vote "no" given its own political concerns regarding the 
separatist territories of Abkhazia and South Ossetia.  In 
response to post's request, MFA Legal Director Irakli 
Giviashvili informed post on June 1 that the GoG would submit 
an official ballot, but would also again be forced to vote 
"no" for Kosovo's membership in the WB in order to maintain 
consistency.
