SUBJECT: VIETNAM MFA PREPARING REPORT ON IRAN'S COMPLIANCE WITH
UNSCR 1737

REF: A) STATE 23001; B) STATE 24344

(SBU) On March 2, Poloff met with MFA International Organizations
Department Desk Officer Dang Quoc Hung to deliver Ref A's points on
Iran. Hung said Vietnam "always" supports use of nuclear material
for peaceful purposes and settlement of disputes through
negotiation. He noted that Vietnam has signed several nuclear
non-proliferation and disarmament treaties and maintains good
relations with the IAEA. In response to Poloff's assertion that
Iran's nuclear program does not seem peaceful and that the IAEA
report makes clear Iran is not cooperating on several outstanding
issues, Hung said Vietnam is in the process of preparing its own
report and would convey our points to his leadership. Poloff left
with Hung the Ref B text of Washington's 60-day report on "Efforts
Toward Implementing UNSCR 1737" for MFA's consideration.
