SUBJECT: FINNISH RESPONSE: FOLLOWING UP ON U.S. INVITATION
AT THE NUCLEAR SUPPLIERS' GROUP (NSG) PLENARY FOR AN
OPEN-ENDED SEMINAR TO DISCUSS UNSCR 1737 AND 1747
IMPLEMENTATION

REF: STATE 69283

PolChief delivered subject demarche to Tarja Pesamaa, Deputy
Director of the Finnish MFA's Unit for Arms Control,
Disarmament and Non-Proliferation. Finland strongly supports
an open-ended meeting on national implementation to include
as much information exchange as possible. She characterized
Russia's move in South Africa to block consensus on forming a
working group as unhelpful, but said that Finland is
perfectly comfortable with an information exchange that is
informal or "open ended." The GOF will attend the Vienna
meeting.
