1. We delivered ref A text of proposed assurances to the
North America desk of the Indonesian Department of Foreign
Affairs (DEPLU) on October 3. We asked for confirmation that
the GOI in fact wanted the spare parts in question. We also
advised that the GOI consider offering blanket assurances
based on the same text to facilitate future transfers. We
noted that much of the text of the assurances was similar to
language in the recently enacted Section 505 Agreement (ref
B), a fact which might speed the GOI clearance process.

2. DEPLU officials said they would discuss the request with
relevant agencies and reply to our questions.
