relevant agencies and offices ahead of a September 20
interagency meeting in preparation for the October 5
bilateral discussions.

2. (U) Pursuant to reftel instructions, we urged that as many
relevant agencies as possible be represented at the October 5

questions GOI might have. He stated that Director General

talks that day.
