(SBU) Embassy delivered Ref A points to MFA Energy Department
Deputy Director General Hakki Akil February 11. Akil said
his government welcomed the Ukrainian decision, but he
cautioned that they would not be ready to celebrate until oil
actually flowed through the pipeline "in the right
direction." Akil said he had heard that Chevron-Texaco was
"very interested" in negotiating a deal with Kiev to
transport crude through Odesa-Brody, and expressed hope the
USG would encourage such a deal. Embassy responded that the
USG has encouraged the GOU to negotiate with commercial
players, and would stay engaged. Akil responded that his
government would do the same.
