ASSURANCES

REF: STATE 95729

1. PolOff delivered reftel dipnote to MFA Head of Dept for
International Security Sanja Bujas-Juraga on July 13. She
informed PolOff July 27 that she had forwarded the USG
proposal to all relevant ministries and would provide
reactions soonest.

2. COMMENT: Bujas-Juraga seemed interested in proposal as way
to speed up assurance process, but expressed some hesitation
at how this might restrict their outreach to Croatian private
industry on non-proliferation matters, such as education
based on USG/EXBS-origin training. PolOff advised that this
agreement did not apply to such EXBS training but rather
material acquired via Foreign Military Sales, but Post may
have to do additional outreach within other ministries before
the GOC will be ready to make these blanket assurances. END
COMMENT.
