SUBJECT: REVISED: MINISTERIAL-LEVEL DEMARCHE REGARDING IRAN ISSUE
AT UPCOMING IAEA BOARD OF GOVERNORS MEETING

REF: STATE 124747

1. Per instructions reftel, Charge met with Foreign Minister
Antipas MBUSA Nyamwisi September 12. Charge went over points
contained reftel. Mbusa acknowledged he did not follow the IAEA
closely as he is currently spearheading a diplomatic offensive to
secure regional support for DRC efforts against negative forces in
the east of the country and will soon travel with President Kabila
to Europe to discuss this and other issues.

2. Kabila stated, however, that Ministry officials had spoken to
him about "Iranian intransigence." He promised to pass on our
message to the appropriate officials in the Foreign Ministry.

3. Note for Vienna and New York: Given Mbusa's preoccupation with
other matters, we suggest U.S. officials demarche Congolese
counterparts.
