2. (SBU) Environment, Science and Technology (EST) Counselor
delivered REFTEL points on January 31 to Counselor Luiz Fernando
Abbott Galvao in the Ministry of External Relations' Division for
Disarmament and Sensitive Technologies. Galvao recalled the USG
statement about the USG soon distributing a draft document on India
after the November meeting of the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG). He
noted that earlier Brazil had submitted comments to the USG on a
draft NSG policy statement, and per REFTEL, EST Counselor replied
that most of the comments received had been incorporated into a
revised draft. Galvao recognized that the negotiations between
India and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) were in a
sensitive stage. He accepted without comment the information that
the USG planned to distribute NSG policy statement only after the
completion of a safeguards agreement between India and the IAEA.
