1. (SBU) In separate meetings April 23, we discussed the nuclear
fuel fabrication transaction between Exelon Corporation and TVEL of
Russia with Senior Counselor Aleksey Karpov and Second Secretary
Aleksandr Trofimov from the MFA's Department for Security and
Disarmament Affairs, and with Konstantin Popov, Acting Director of
the International Department at Rosatom. Karpov, Trofimov and Popov
agreed that preliminarily this appeared to be a routine civilian
nuclear commercial transaction. Popov said that Rosatom would work
on preparing the requested GOR assurances for the transaction.
