SUBJECT: FRENCH REPRESENTATION AT UPCOMING NPT-RELATED
MEETINGS

REF: STATE 102585

1. (SBU) In response to reftel, MFA NPT desk officer Arnaud
Mentre told us July 26 upcoming NPT-related meetings would be
attended by their relevant Ambassadors. However, the
policymaking and preparation lead will remain in Paris.

2. (SBU) For the IAEA meetings in September, Francois-Xavier
Deniau, French representative at IAEA, is the likely head of
delegation. Jean-Francois Dobelle, French representative at
the Conference on Disarmament, will likely be the head of
delegation for the First Committee meeting in October and for
the 2008 PrepCom, though a formal decision will not be made
on PrepCom delegation leadership until January.

3. (SBU) Although Deniau and Dobelle would be the
appropriate participants in any side meetings, any
consultations taking place prior to the meetings should be
with the responsible parties at the MFA: Philippe Carre,
A/S-equivalent for Strategic Affairs, and his DAS-equivalent
for Disarmament and Nuclear Nonproliferation, Martin Briens.
Briens replaced Philippe Errera in that role in May.
