IRAN'S NOVEMBER 30 NUCLEAR CONFERENCE

REF: A. STATE 122401

C. MOSCOW 3215

(SBU) On November 25, per reftels A and B, ESToff met with
Alexander Bolichiov, Second Secretary in the MFA Department
of Security and Disarmament Affairs, to reiterate and
reinforce the USG message regarding non-attendance at Iran's
November 30 Nuclear Conference (ref C). Bolichiov indicated
that he had just returned from a visit to the IAEA
secretariat in Vienna and while there, had been assured that
the IAEA had no intention of allowing the conference to
become a platform for a positive political statement from
Iran. Bolichiov said that the MFA had sent a letter to
Rosatom State Corporation and "other agencies" requesting
that no "political level" attendees be sent to the upcoming
conference. He stated that Rosatom State Corporation was
sending a working-level delegation. Bolichiov allowed that
the MFA shares the USG view that now was not the time to
conduct business as usual with Iran.
