Classified By: Deputy Political Minister Counselor Robert Griffiths. R
easons 1.4 (b/d).



1. (S) China will investigate the additional information
provided by the United States regarding efforts by the
Pakistan Heavy Mechanical Complex to procure ring-rolling and
flow forming machines in China, MFA Arms Control and
Disarmament Department Missile Division Acting Deputy
Director He Yi stated in response to Poloff's delivery on
February 15 of reftel points.



2. (S) In response to Poloff's request for an update on
China's investigation of this activity, He Yi said that he
lacked instructions to share information with us at this
time, but thought that he would be able to provide a report
in the near future. Poloff stressed that the information we
are sharing with China is extremely detailed and more than
sufficient to sustain a Chinese investigation. This is not
the first time that the United States has brought the
activities of these Chinese firms to the attention of the
MFA. He Yi acknowledged this, saying that he recalled us
first mentioning the China National Nonferrous Metals Import
Export Company with China in 2005. Poloff again urged China
to take immediate action to investigate these firms and to
share with us as soon as possible the results of the
investigation.
