(SBU) Global Affairs officer delivered ref A registration
information August 30 to MFA Nuclear Nonproliferation Desk
Officer Joerg Polster. Polster said the German Government
had ruled out sending a minister to participate in the
September 16 Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP)
ministerial, but had not yet taken a decision on whether to
send a working level representative to observe the meeting.
Polster reiterated the German Government's commitment to
phase out nuclear power facilities would make it politically
unfeasible to participate in GNEP, but stressed German
interest in cooperating on the nonproliferation and nuclear
security aspects. Post will continue to follow up with
relevant German ministries and report any subsequent response
