1. (SBU) On August 15 we shared reftel letters from NNSA Deputy
Administrator Tobey and Ambassador Guhin to Rosatom Deputy Directors
Spasskiy and Kamenskikh, as well as the accompanying U.S. comments
on the draft joint statement on plutonium disposition. Kamenskikh
has agreed to meet with Deputy Administrator Tobey and Ambassador
Guhin on August 29. Spasskiy only returned from vacation on August
20, and that meeting request is still pending. Rosatom is currently
reviewing the latest round of U.S. comments, including our request
for clarification on additional donor funding, and we do not expect
to receive an official response before the August 29 meeting.
