1. (S) On February 7, Econchief talked to MFA Director of
International Cooperation (and the MFA's representative to
the UAE's counter proliferation committee) Yacoub Al-Hosani
to follow-up on the status of the investigation into Elmstone
Trading. Al-Hosani told Econchief that he had been in touch
with the relevant authorities and that they were
investigating the case. He committed to providing information
when it became available.



2. (C) Comment: Post will continue to follow-up, but
suggests that this would be a good issue for A/S Rood to
raise during the upcoming Counterproliferation Task Force
meeting as well. End Comment.
