TAGS: PREL UNGA PARM KNNP IR RP MNUC IAEA AORC
SUBJECT: PHILIPPINES WELCOMES U.S. VIEWS ON IAEA ACTIVITY RELATED TO IRAN

REF: A. SECSTATE 19694

¶B. SECSTATE 19200

Classified By: Acting DCM Tom Gibbons, reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)

¶1. (S) Post delivered reftel demarches to Acting Executive
Director Leah Ruiz of the Department of Foreign Affairs’
Office of United Nations and Other International
Organizations (UNIO) on February 27 and February 28 regarding
International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) assessments of
Iran’s activities. In both demarches, poloff noted that Iran
continues to disregard UN Security Council resolutions.
Poloff reviewed with Ruiz the assessments of IAEA Director
ElBaradei’s February 22 report on Iran’s nuclear program
February 27 (ref B). Ruiz listened carefully and said that
she would need to consult with colleagues before commenting
but said that the Philippines shares our concern about Iran’s
lack of compliance.

¶2. (S) On February 28, poloff delivered additional points to
Ruiz (ref A) based on IAEA Deputy Director Heinonen’s
February 25 briefing to IAEA Member States. Ruiz listened to
Heinonen’s conclusions, particularly that reports of Iranian
nuclear weapons-related work could not/not be safely called
“baseless fabrication,” as Iran is claiming. Poloff
underscored three points contained in the non-paper of ref A
concerning 1) Iran’s enrichment-related activities, 2) Iran’s
refusal to implement the Additional Protocol, and 3) the lack
of information on Iran’s work on weaponization. The next day
Ruiz said that she had received materials from the Philippine
Mission in Geneva, which she would review carefully alongside
the nonpapers in refs A and B.
