Classified By: Global Affairs Counselor Donald R. Shemanski, for reason
s 1.4 (b) and (d).



1. (C) Global Affairs officer passed ref A non-paper to
German MFA Export Control Division Deputy Chief Markus
Klinger May 9. Klinger thanked us for the non-paper, which
provides USG feedback on Germany's proposal for Missile
Technology Control Regime (MTCR) denial notifications (see
ref E). Klinger said he will pass the USG feedback to the
appropriate German officials, including Ina Schuett, for
review. The German officials will study the feedback from
the MTCR partners with whom the proposal was shared, revise
the draft, and circulate it well before the autumn MTCR
Plenary, Klinger said. He also noted Germany's concern that
a few MTCR partners might reject the proposal, based on their
record of denying initial approval for other German proposals
in the past. For these partners, Germany may approach them
separately to advocate its proposal in advance of the
plenary, Klinger said.



2. (U) Post will report any other significant German response
septel.
