Youn Jong-kwon, Deputy Director of the Disarmament and
Nonproliferation Division of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

problems with the ROKG sharing the information with the IAEA
and the UN Security Council, but needed to know which non-NSG
countries would also receive the information.

countries the Iran denial information will be shared with.
End Action Request.
