SUBJECT: PREPARING FOR THE NUCLEAR SECURITY SUMMIT:
PREPARATIONS FOR THE FEBRUARY 9-11 SHERPA MEETING IN THE
HAGUE

REF: STATE 7493

Embassy of the Netherlands Political Officer Hanneke Boerma
and Deputy Political Counselor requested an appointment with
South Africa's Nuclear Security Summit Sherpa, Ambassador
Abdul Minty, as requested reftel. As Ambassador Minty is out
of the country, Department of International Relations and
Cooperation Deputy Director for Nuclear Disarmament and
Nonproliferation Johann Kellerman met with us on January 28.
POLOFF presented a note verbale containing the text provided
reftel. Boerma delivered a formal invitation from the
Government of the Netherlands, along with logistics
information on the Sherpa meetings. Kellerman said
Ambassador Minty was traveling in Europe and assured us he
would convey our message. He also noted that South Africa
does not have a sous-sherpa for the Summit. He expressed
confidence that South Africa's embassy in the Hague would
support Ambassador Minty's participation in the Sherpa
meeting.
