INTERNET DISTRIBUTION.

2. (SBU) On February 27, 2008, Environment, Science, Technology and
Health (ESTH) Counselor met with the Deputy Director of the Ministry
of External Relations' Department of Disarmament and Sensitive
Technologies, Counselor Luiz Fernando Abbott Galvao, to discuss,
among other things, developing a mechanism for reliable access to
nuclear fuels (RANF) under the International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA). ESTH Counselor delivered the points in REFTEL.

3. (SBU) Galvao thanked the USG for sharing its views. He said
that the Government of Brazil (GOB) was "ready to take part in
discussions" on RANF. He added, Brazil feels pretty comfortable
with RANF because it is developing its own enrichment capabilities.
Galvao saw Brazil as one of the countries that had enrichment
activities under RANF. He was looking forward to discussing RANF at
an upcoming nuclear energy conference in Berlin in April.
