SUBJECT: ANTARCTIC TREATY: POLAND MAKING PROGRESS ON
ADOPTION OF ATCM MEASURE 1

REF: STATE 74080

(SBU) EconPff delivered reftel demarche to Jakub T. Wolski,
of the MFA's Legal and Treaty Department, on July 25. Wolski
stated that Poland has been making progress on approving
Measure 1 (2003) of the Antarctic Treaty Consultative Meeting
(ATCM). The major roadblock has been translating the large
number of documents associated with the measure. They
finished translation of all the required materials in June
2008, and now only need to forward the documents to the
Council of Ministers for final approval. Barring any
unforeseen problems, Wolski anticipated that Poland would be
able to approve Measure 1 by September 2008.

(SBU) Econoff and Wolski briefly discussed the U.S.-hosted
32nd ATCM, scheduled for April 2009, particularly with
respect to approving Measure 1 well before the conference.
Wolski anticipated that Poland would likely be represented at
Minister level at the 2009 ATCM. To ensure the highest
possible level of participation, he requested additional
details regarding the conference, including logistics and a
recommendation for the optimal dates for Ministerial
participation.
