SUBJECT: GNZ ON NATO/ISAF REQUESTS

REF: STATE 71547

Classified By: Acting DCM Katherine B. Hadda,
for reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)

1. (C) Acting DCM and A/P-E couns delivered reftel request
to Paul Ash, Deputy Director of the Security Policy and
Disarmament Division at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and
Trade. We conveyed Washington's appreciation for New
Zealand's continued positive role in Afghanistan.

2. (C) Ash said that although New Zealand cannot commit
addtional military forces, GNZ officials will review the
request list carefully to see if there are any possible
contributions that the GNZ can make. He also said that New
Zealand is about to start its annual Cabinet-level review of
Peacekeeping Operations. One goal of this year's review will
be to improve coordination among Ministries so that all NZ
officials are better informed about -- and can better explain
to us -- New Zealand's military and non-military
contributions to global PKO activities.

3. (C) FYI: Ash will leave Wellington in December for
Brussels, where he will serve as NZ's Deputy Chief of
Mission. End FYI.
