SENSITIVE BUT UNCLASSIFIED -- PLEASE HANDLE ACCORDINGLY

1. (U) Poloff delivered points from ref a demarche
concerning the Nuclear Security Summit (NSS) and, together
with Dutch Political Counselor Paul Ymkers, from ref b
demarche on the Third NSS Sherpa Meeting at a January 29
meeting with Andy Rachmianto, Department of Foreign Affairs
(DEPLU) Deputy Director of the Directorate for International
Security and Disarmament, and Widjaksono Adji of the
Directorate for International Security and Disarmament.

2. (SBU) Rachmianto said that the GOI had previously
confirmed its February Sherpa Meeting representatives to the
NSC. The Indonesian Sherpa is DEPLU DG for Multilateral
Affairs Amb. Rezlan Ishar Jenie. Acting Sous Sherpa is Adji,
as above. The Indonesian delegation to The Hague will also
include one member from Indonesia's Nuclear Energy Regulatory
Agency (BAPETEN) and/or one member from Indonesia's mission
in Vienna. Rachmianto added that Indonesia had continued
engagement on substantive summit issues and had already
submitted its proposed amendments to the draft communique.
President Yudhoyono had yet to make up his mind on attending
the April NSS, but would likely do so in March, depending on
the results of the Sherpa Meeting and on prospects for other
leaders attending the NSS.

3. (SBU) On a separate issue, Rachmianto said Indonesia was
still considering whether to ratify the Comprehensive Test
Ban Treaty (CTBT) in advance of the United States or continue
with its current plan of ratifying the CTBT shortly after the
U.S. Regardless of timing, the GOI continued to work toward
ratification. These efforts currently focused on
"socializing" new members of Parliament to the content and
importance of the CTBT, so that they would be able to act
quickly to ratify when the time was right.
