(S) Pol-Miloff delivered reftel talking points on 07 June to MFA Security Policy Department staffer Bostjan Jerman, who handles non-proliferation issues, and MFA North America Desk Officer Oliver Djaic. Jerman, who returned to the MFA from overseas in 2004, was unfamiliar with the 2002 Ioce/Elopsys case but said he would look it up to use as a starting point. He said he would share the information with relevant law enforcement authorities and begin an investigation. Jerman immediately grasped the importance of the inquiry and noted that Slovenia needed to cooperate fully in any investigation, especially as an aspiring member of the MTCR. Embassy will continue to follow-up with Jerman and report any findings immediately. ROBERTSON
