SUBJECT: DUTCH RESPONSE ON IAEA SAFEGUARDS BUDGET INCREASE
REF: SECSTATE 150262
(SBU) PolOff delivered reftel demarche to MFA's
Nonproliferation Director Paul Wilke on June 5. While the
Dutch MFA supports the safeguards budget increase, their
Ministry of Finance does not. Accordingly, the GONL is not
in a position to demarche other countries at this time. If
the IAEA approves the budget increase, this may improve the
MFA's leverage with the Ministry of Finance.
