SUBJECT: UKRAINE/MTCR: U.S. VIEWS ON CONTROLLING
UAVS/CRUISE MISSILES

REF: STATE 190333

Classified By: Political Counselor Kent Logsdon for reasons 1.4(b,d)



1. (C) We relayed reftel points on a U.S. proposal to revise
the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) approach to
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)/cruise missiles December 5 to
MFA Arms Control and Military Technical Cooperation
Department Counselors Igor Kyzym and Oleh Belokoles. We
stressed the high priority that the U.S. places on the
proposal and our interest in gaining consensus for its
adoption in early 2007.



2. (C) Kyzym said he would transmit our views to the
technical experts in the National Space Agency of Ukraine
(NSAU) for their examination and evaluation. NSAU, which has
the lead in the Ukrainian government, would formulate the
Ukrainian position, taking into account USG views as
contained in the non-papers. Kyzym said he understood a
parallel effort was underway within the Wassenaar Arrangement
to ensure that both regimes' treatment of UAVs/cruise
missiles was harmonized.
