B. COFFEE-HOLACHEK E-MAIL OF 9 AUG AND PREVIOUS

1. On August 10, Ambassador and Czech Ministry of Defense
Director of Security Policy Ivan Dvorak concluded a limited
agreement concerning end-use, security and retransfer
assurances related to planned USG provision of military
articles under Section 1206 of the FY2007 NDAA. The limited
agreement, which covers only items to be provided under the
FY07 section 1206 funds, was an expediency to get the
necessary assurances in place in a timely fashion, as agreed
in ref B exchanges. The GOCR still intends to undertake the
interagency review required to responded to the Embassy
dipnote (ref A) and provide blanket assurances. However,
this review will take several more weeks.

2. Originals of the agreement signed August 10 will be
pouched to L/T.
