TAGS: IR KNNP MNUC PARM IAEA
SUBJECT: GOT FULLY CONCURS WITH USG ASSESSMENT OF DG
ELBARADEI'S REPORT, PROMISES FULL SUPPORT AT THE JUNE 16
BOG


REF: A. SECSTATE 158048

B. SECSTATE 152375

C. ANKARA 3751




1. (U) Classified by Deputy Chief of Mission Robert Deutsch.
Reasons 1.5 (b) and (d).




2. (C) On June 12, we delivered ref A demarche, following up
on ref B demarche (reported in ref C). The GOT has gone over
ElBaradei's report with great care and fully concurred with
USG concerns over Iran's pattern of deception with regard to
its nuclear program. MFA Disarmament Head Ibrahim Yagli
promised full support for the USG approach for the June 16
Board of Governors meeting. He also expressed thanks for the
non-paper, noting that it would be valuable in the crafting
of the GOT's national statement for the June 16 meeting.




3. (C) Yagli also stressed the need for appropriate follow-up
to the June 16 meeting, to ensure that the issue of Iran's
nuclear program continues to receive close attention by the
Board. He concurred with the proposal in ref A for another DG
report to a special Board session before the next regularly
scheduled Board meeting. However, he suggested that the Board
go one step further by also requesting more frequent,
"informal," reports on inspections in Iran by the IAEA
Secretariat (whether orally, in written format, or both).

SIPDIS
These "spot" reports would lead up to the formal DG report.
(COMMENT: We believe Yagli's suggestion is quite useful and
recommend full consideration by Washington.)
