SUBJECT: BELGIUM TO ATTEND GLOBAL PARTNERSHIP WORKING GROUP
MARCH 3 IN LONDON

REF: STATE 37339

(SBU) Belgian MFA Nonproliferation Director Werner Bauwens
confirmed to D/PolCouns March 1 that Belgium will attend the
March 3 Global Partnership Working Group meeting in London,
per reftel invitation. Bauwens reported that a Belgian
diplomat from the Belgian Embassy in London will attend, with
the Belgian Embassy coordinating directly with U.S. Embassy
London on the arrangements. Bauwens noted that initial
planning had been for an MFA expert from his Directorate to
attend both the UK-hosted NDCI Conference in London March 4-5
and the U.S.-hosted Global Partnership meeting March 3, but
severe budgetary constraints at the MFA had now significantly
reduced travel funds. Thus, the Belgian Embassy will have to
cover both events.
