SUBJECT: INDONESIA RESPONSE ON NUCLEAR SECURITY SUMMIT
SHERPA MEETINGS

REF: STATE 104896

1. (U) This is an Action Message. Please see para 3.

2. (U) Per reftel, Poloff provided a briefing on the
upcoming Sous-Sherpa and Sherpa meetings in advance of the
April 2010 Nuclear Security Summit to Andy Rachmianto, Deputy
Director of the Department of Foreign Affairs (DEPLU)
Directorate for International Security and Disarmament. In
response to that information and to our reminder of the
opportunity for the GOI to provide comment on the Possible
Summit Outcomes paper, Rachmianto said that Indonesia looks
forward to participating in the full range of meetings in the
run-up to the summit.

3. (SBU) Rachmianto noted that Indonesia has yet to name a
Sherpa or Sous-Sherpa since it not yet received a formal
invitation to the summit. The GOI understands that it is an
invitee, but for internal reasons cannot fully engage until
it has received a formal invitation. Mission requests that
Department forward the GOI's formal invitation as soon as
possible.
