(C) On April 14, we shared ref A request for French support
for the draft amendment to the Convention for the Suppression
of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime Navigation
(SUA) with Veronique Vouland, Deputy Director for Disarmament
Issues in the MFA. Vouland told us April 15 that France
shares our goals and will support us in ensuring that Article
8bis is approved by the Legal Committee as is. Vouland
expressed appreciation for U.S. efforts and reminded us that
France had been partially responsible for raising the need
for such an article.
