SUBJECT: RUSSIAN CONCERNS ON ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON EXPORT
DENIALS PROVIDED BY GROUP OF NUCLEAR SUPPLIERS

REF: STATE 11499

Sensitive But Unclassified, Protect Accordingly

1. (SBU) On February 15, we delivered reftel points regarding U.S.
support for the IAEA request to the Nuclear Suppliers Group (NSG)
Governments for additional information regarding export denials to
Iran or nuclear related items already delivered to Iran.

2. (SBU) Alexandr Bolichiov of the MFA Directorate of Disarmament
and Security Affairs (DVBR) expressed two concerns. First is the
potential for information to be leaked when provided to the IAEA or
the NSG. He reports that Russia has had a number of incidents in
which information provided to IAEA or NSG was leaked outside these
groups. Second, the GOR normally reports Iran nuclear item
deliveries through established channels in the UNSC. There is no
established mechanism for reporting this type of information to the
NSG or IAEA.
