SUBJECT: TANZANIA'S IMPLEMENTATION OF OBLIGATIONS UNDER THE
CHEMICAL WEAPONS CONVENTION

REF: STATE 178365

1. (U) Suleman Saleh, Assistant Director for Multilateral
Affairs at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, promised to
determine the status of Tanzania's legislation on Chemical
Weapons and inform the Embassy about the legislation's status
by November 6. With the upcoming Eleventh Session of the
Chemical Weapons Conference in December, Poloff emphasized
the need for Tanzania to move swiftly on the draft
legislation to ensure compliance with its Article VII
obligations.

2. (U) Regarding the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC),
Saleh was unsure why Tanzania was not yet a State Party but
promised to follow-up with the Ministry of Defense to
ascertain why. He thanked Poloff for the invitation to
observe the Sixth Review Conference of BWC States Parties in
Geneva and the offer for technical assistance to enable new
States Parties to meet the BWC's requirements on domestic
implementation.
