1. (SBU) We discussed reftel issues on July 25 with Andy
Rachmiato, Deputy Director for WMD Issues in the Directorate
for International Security and Disarmament at the Indonesian
Department of Foreign Affairs. Rachmianto thanked us for the
report on the U.S. ratification process and noted the United

Currently the government of Indonesia was reviewing relevant

adopt the convention and fully enforce it.
