SUBJECT: GREECE: IRAN'S UPCOMING NUCLEAR CONFERENCE
DEMARCHE DELIVERED

REF: STATE 112229

1. (U) On October 23, DepPolCouns and Poloff delivered
reftel demarche on the upcoming nuclear conference in Iran to
Ambassador Tryphon Paraskevopoulos, Director of the MFA D1
Department United Nations and International Organizations
Affairs, and Loukas Tsokos, D1 First Secretary. Tsokos said
D1 had not heard of the conference nor received an
invitation. He added that he checked with the MFA A6
Directorate for Arab Countries and the Middle East and they
had the same response. We pushed them not to participate in
the conference as it would legitimize Iran's claims that its
nuclear activities were exclusively peaceful. Tsokos
responded there was no prospect of a Greek delegation
attending the conference but added it was possible the Greek
Ambassador in Tehran could attend for "informational"
purposes. He said he would conduct further inquiries with
the Greek Ministry of Development and Economy and would
notify us if he received more information or an invitation
from Iran.
