(SBU) On December 2, PolOff met with MFA International
Organizations Assistant Director General Do Hung Viet to deliver
reftel demarche regarding the Iranian uranium enrichment facility
and to urge Vietnam to support efforts to hold Iran to its
international nonproliferation obligations. PolOff briefed Viet on
the latest developments and encouraged Vietnam's mission in New

for the information, but offered no substantive comment. He
promised to relay the information to his supervisors at the Foreign
Ministry and to Vietnamese officials in New York. Viet reiterated
Vietnam's support for international non-proliferation objectives
and said Vietnam was committed to fulfilling its obligations. At
