SUBJECT: DEMARCHE DELIVERED: U.S. NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE
ESTIMATE ON IRAN'S NUCLEAR PROGRAM

REF: SECSTATE 162558

1. (SBU) Per reftel, post delivered message to Terence
Craig, head of the Americas Division of the Ministry of
Foreign Affairs of the government of Suriname (GOS). Craig
told EmbOff "you guys have our support... as long as it
involves international peace and security, we are with you."

2. (SBU) Despite his fine sounding sentiments, Craig's
comments were a diplomatic pleasantry--Suriname is unlikely
to "support" the U.S. in any substantive way on this issue.
Furthermore, Craig's reference to "as long as it involves
international peace and security" was not a statement of
solidarity, but a reminder that Suriname has concerns about
the United States' ultimate goals and methods in Iran.

3. (U) Post will report any substantive response from the
GOS.
