officer for Arms Control and Non-Proliferation at the German
MFA on June 30. Goelz welcomed the talks and noted that
Germany will continue to press China as necessary on space
issues. She also promised to share the information with
relevant personnel within the MFA and other German ministries.

2. (U) In addition, Goelz mentioned that, during a recent
trip to Brussels, she discussed the idea with Deputy Director
for Space Policy, Richard Buenneke, of holding joint MFA/MOD

at our convenience later this summer or in early autumn.
