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

REF: A. STATE 125635

B. OTTAWA 1511
C. STATE 105501

1. (SBU) Upon receipt of ref A, we followed up ref B interim
response with Department of Foreign Affairs and International
Trade (DFAIT) Deputy Director for Nuclear Non-Proliferation
Craig Weichel on September 6.

2. (SBU) Weichel told us that Canada would not/not consider
U.S. export authorization to Israel to be an undercut because
the high-speed camera's specifications (ref C) preclude its
use for nuclear explosive-related research.
