SUBJECT: BULGARIA: NON COMMITTAL ON DEMARCHE ON REQUEST
FOR MORE NSG EXPORT DENIAL DATA

REF: STATE 11499

(SBU) On February 6, we delivered REFTEL points and IAEA
Deputy Director General for Safeguards Olli Heinonen's letter
requesting additional information about the nuclear-related
export denial information on Iran to MFA's Maria S.
Atanassova, Head of the Export Control Section, Arms Control
Department and Daniela Boudinova, State Expert on Nuclear
Issues, Arms Control and International Security Department.
Ms. Atanassova thanked us for Heinonen's letter and said that
Bulgaria had a shared interest in the ongoing IAEA
investigation into the Iranian Nuclear Program. However, she
was non committal on Bulgaria regarding the request to
provide additional export denial information on Iran with the
United States or IAEA.
