1. On August 27, Post delivered reftel talking points to
Therese Healy, Third Secretary in the Department of Foreign
Affairs (DFA) Disarmament and Non-Proliferation Section.
Healy said that Ireland backs the UK/Austrian proposal to
make the Additional Protocol (AP) a Condition of Supply (COS)
for transfers of Trigger List items and related technology.
Ireland's support for robust non-proliferation standards, she
added, was reflected in the U.S.-EU Declaration on the
Non-proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction, issued at
the June U.S.-EU Summit. She expressed thanks for U.S.
support of the initiative to bring new EU Member States into
the Nuclear Suppliers Group. Healy also noted that there was
broad support for the AP proposal within the EU, except for
France, and that the EU's non-proliferation working group
would discuss the issue further in a planned September 1
meeting. Healy expressed hope that the discussion could lead
France to soften its position against the AP proposal.
