SUBJECT: GOR HIGH-LEVEL ATTENDANCE AT 61ST UNGA

REF: STATE 112656

1. (SBU) The MFA told us that Foreign Minister Sergey
Viktorovich Lavrov will likely lead the Russian delegation at
the 61st UNGA. The Foreign Ministry is awaiting Kremlin
approval of the delegation list. There are no plans at this
time for President Putin or PM Fradkov to attend.

2. (SBU) Travel dates for FM Lavrov have not yet been
determined. There are no specific requests for bilateral
meetings at this time, although the MFA expected that such
requests would be received. FM Lavrov speaks English and
would not need interpretation in meetings.

3. (SBU) FM Lavrov will likely be accompanied by DFM
Aleksandr Yakovenko, Chairman of the Russian Federation
Council International Affairs Committee Mikhail Margelov, and
Chairman of the Duma International Affairs Committee
Konstantin Kosachev.
