CONFERENCE

REF: STATE 159330

1. (SBU) We shared reftel information about the upcoming Avian and
Pandemic Influenza Conference in New Delhi with Russian officials at
the International Departments of the MFA, Health and Social
Development Ministry, the Federal Surveillance Service for Consumer
Rights Protection and Human Well-Being (Roszdravnadzor), and the
Federal Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance Service
(Rosselkhoznadzor). On November 30, Deputy Director Alexander
Pankin of the MFA's International Department advised us that the
Russian Embassy in New Delhi would send a representative to the
conference. He also noted that Russia was not planning to make any
additional international pledges for avian and pandemic influenza
during the conference. Nikolay Vlasov, Head of Rosselkhoznadzor's
Veterinary Directorate, told us that two of his agency's
veterinarians would attend the conference at GOR expense. The
Health and Social Development Ministry and Rospotrebnadzor said that
they would not be sending representatives to the New Delhi
Conference.
