SUBJECT: SOUTH AFRICA: NUCLEAR FUEL BANKS - SEEKING
CO-SPONSORS FOR RESOLUTION ON ANGARSK RESERVE

REF: STATE 120282

(SBU) Deputy Political Counselor delivered reftel message to
Department of International Relations and Cooperation Deputy
Director for Nuclear Disarmament and Nonproliferation Johann
Kellerman on November 23. Kellerman said South Africa's
general policy is not to co-sponsor any resolution that it
did not help to draft. He added that Pretoria does
occasionally make exceptions to this general rule and would
look at co-sponsoring the Russian draft IAEA resolution to
authorize the IAEA Director General to enter into agreements
establishing the first international nuclear fuel reserve in
Angarsk, Russia.
