SUBJECT: French have no response to US Proposal to Change GNEP into
INEF

REF: State 106834

1. (U) The French accepted without substantive response our
non-paper on the U.S. proposal to change the Global Nuclear Energy
Partnership (GNEP) into the International Nuclear Energy Framework
(INEF). Both the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Nuclear
Non-Proliferation Policy Division, and the Ministry of Ecology,
Environment, Sustainable Development and Oceans (MEEDDM) offices
handling international nuclear issues had no immediate response.
The French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) readily responded that
they were already familiar with the proposal, and the Chairman of
the CEA, Mr. Bigot, looks forward to discussing the proposal with
the US delegation soon.
