1. (SBU) China welcomed refs A and B information about
expansion of the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear
Terrorism (GI) to include ten new members, MFA Arms Control
Department official Yu Dunhai told poloff May 10. China
continues to urge that the process for adding new members be
refined, as noted ref D, Yu said.

2. (SBU) China welcomed ref C inormation about the upcoming
third GI meeting in Kazakhstan. Yu said China is researching
the possibility of making a presentation on Olympic security
issues as requested by the American and Russian co-chairs and
is consulting with other agencies about whether it can give
such a presentation. Because this question involves experts
outside the Foreign Ministry, China cannot provide an answer
by the May 9 deadline and will be in touch as soon as it has
a formal response, Yu said.

3. (SBU) Poloff conveyed further information about the
FBI-sponsored GI conference in Miami and asked the Chinese to
provide a delegation list by next week. Yu said China would
send a delegation to the conference but may have difficulty
meeting the suggested registration deadline.
