SUBJECT: ESTONIA: TRANSFERRING SURPLUS AMMUNITION TO
LEBANON UNLIKELY

Ref: STATE 93173

(SBU) On July 5, we delivered reftel points to Tonu
Miller, Acting MFA Director for Security and Arms
Control, and Kristjan Prikk, MFA Security and Arms
Control Desk Officer, and requested the GOE donate
surplus ammunition to the Government of Lebanon (GOL).
Given the Estonian Defense Force's limited stock of the
specific ammunition requested and ongoing demands from
Estonia's own military operations in Afghanistan and
Iraq, Prikk said that it was highly unlikely that
Estonia could donate any surplus ammunition to the GOL
in the 10-15 day timeframe requested.
