E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: EAIR ECON PTER BR
SUBJECT: BRAZIL: DEMARCHE DELIVERED ON INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION OF
FEDERAL FLIGHT DECK OFFICER PROGRAM

REF: SECSTATE 165447

1. (SBU) TSA Regional Attache and Econoffs delivered reftel
demarche Monday afternoon to representatives from the Brazilian
National Civil Aviation Authority, ANAC, as well as GOB
interlocutors from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Brazilian
Airports Authority, INFRAERO.

2. (SBU) The GOB representatives present expressed fairly strong
disfavor to permitting armed pilots to enter into Brazil. It was
expressed by one ANAC official active in ICAO that "the Brazilian
national position is to prohibit having any weapon in the cabin of
an aircraft," and that there is already some resistance to the idea
of having even Federal Air Marshals on board aircraft flying in and
out of Brazil. The same official indicated that the GOB would like
to see conclusive safety studies done on both the Air Marshal and
FFDO programs, and would like the evidence to be presented to the
GOB before any further discussion on this topic. He seemed to feel
that the level of risk accepted by ICAO was not in line with what
the GOB is willing to accept.

3. (SBU) An MFA official retained a copy of the written talking
points.
