SUBJECT: INVITATION TO GPOI G8 CLEARINGHOUSE DELIVERED TO
RUSSIA

REF: STATE 126989

(U) We delivered reftel invitation to MFA Deputy Director for
G8 issues Vasily Pospelov on September 14. Pospelov
expressed appreciation for the invitation and undertook to
ascertain who would attend from the Russian side. He noted,
however, that given the recent changes in the Russian
government, he doubted he would be able to provide the
information on attendees by the September 21 response date.
He said he would send us the information as soon as he
obtained it. He agreed to review the request for an oral
presentation and a written summary of Russian PKO
capacity-building activities regionally/worldwide. He said
that the U.S. had agreed at the last meeting to circulate a
concept paper on TL support arrangements and inquired whether
we had done so (request e-mailed to PM/PPA).
