TAGS: KNNP ENRG IAEA FR
SUBJECT: PRINCIPLES OF THE GLOBAL NUCLEAR ENERGY
PARTNERSHIP (GNEP) - PAPER DELIVERED TO FRENCH AUTHORITIES

REF: SECSTATE 139918

On August 25, Embassy provided Deputy Energy Secretary Sell's
and Under Secretary Joseph's letter, together with the Draft
Global Nuclear Energy Partnership Statement of Principles, to
Stanislas Lefebvre de Laboulaye, the MFA's Political
Director. (Sell and Joseph called upon Laboulaye earlier in
the year to discuss GNEP.) Embassy also provided a copy of
the draft principles to the Deputy Director for International
Affairs at France's Atomic Energy Commission (CEA), Didier
Kechemair. On August 28, ESTH counselor and ESTH
nonproliferation officer provided copies of the
above-mentioned letter and principles to the Deputy Director
of the Sub-Directorate for Nuclear Nonproliferation, Hugues
de Longevialle. The latter recalled the several instances in
which senior U.S. and French officials have discussed GNEP
and said that French authorities would be pleased to review
the draft principles. We emphasized that the U.S. would very
much appreciate receiving any French comments in the next two
weeks.
