SUBJECT: NSG: CANADA'S INTERIM RESPONSE TO PROPOSED EXPORT
OF HIGH SPEED CAMERA TO ISRAEL

REF: STATE 105501

1. (SBU) We delivered reftel demarche to Department of
Foreign Affairs and International Trade Deputy Director for
Nuclear Non-proliferation Craig Weichel on August 1, and
followed-up twice thereafter.

2. (SBU) Weichel told us on August 8 that he expected GOC
technical experts would not/not view the sale as an
"undercut" but that, due to summer staffing constraints, he
did not expect to be in a position to give a definitive
response to our query for at least another week (septel).
