1. (SBU) Post delivered reftel demarche to Darryl Dunn,
Director of Middle East and African Affairs at the New

formulating their response and was in the process of
doing their internal research and seeking clearances. He said
he hoped to have official reaction by next week. The
one point that he did raise was that New Zealand was not the
only country to have asked for and received a generic
exemption. He said that he was aware that the United Kingdom
had also received this consideration.

2. (SBU) Action Request - In anticipation of further
discussion with MFAT next week, Post requests guidance on
responding
to the point raised by Mr. Dunn that other countries like the
UK have received a generic exemption.
