SUBJECT: FRANCE WILL BEGIN RATIFICATION PROCESS FOR THE
INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION FOR THE SUPPRESSION OF ACTS OF
NUCLEAR TERRORISM

REF: STATE 102149

1. (SBU) French MFA counterterrorism official, Francois
Revardeaux, told poloff at the end of July that the MFA will
begin working in September 2007 on ratification of the UN
International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of
Nuclear Terrorism. The Convention's ratification, Revardeaux
said, required passage of new legislation by the National
Assembly. Now that election season was over in France, the
MFA would begin to push the full ratification process
following August holidays. Revardeaux did not anticipate any
significant impediments to the Convention's ratification.

2. (SBU) Revardeaux agreed that it was important for other
countries to sign and ratify the Convention and expressed the
hope that France and the U.S. would soon be leading by
example. As an active member of the 1373 Committee, he said,
France would continue to push for the international adoption
of all UN Conventions related to terrorism.
