1.  (U) On December 1, PolCouns and PolOff delivered message 
in ref A regarding the Suppression of Unlawful Acts (SUA) 
convention and its protocol to Samer Naber, Legal Adviser to 
the Foreign Ministry.  PolCouns also passed the full text of 
proposed USG changes to the SUA per ref B. 
 
2.  (SBU) Naber noted that he has researched conventions and 
treaties to which the GOJ is a party and does not know why 
the GOJ signed, but has yet to ratify, the SUA. "I see no 
reason why we shouldn't ratify it," he said.  Regarding the 
proposed USG amendments to the SUA, Naber said both he and 
the Ministry of Transport will study and "positively consider 
them." 
 
3. (U) We plan to follow up with Naber on this matter.
