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



1. (C) Global Affairs officers delivered ref A demarche to
German MFA Export Control Division Desk Officer Nancy Reck
August 15. The demarche is a response to German views on
U.S. counterproposals (ref D) to a German proposal (ref H)
concerning denial notifications for the Missile Technology
Control Regime (MTCR).



2. (C) Reck, after noting the U.S. suggestion for Germany to
drop a definition of an "essentially identical" transfer from
its proposal on denial notifications, said that less diligent
MTCR Partners might not consult other Partners on denials if
they lacked such a definition. After acknowledging Global
Affairs officer's comment that a definition might actually
give less diligent Partners an excuse not to consult other
Partners if details on a license application, such as the
spelling of an end-user, were not an exact match with another
Partner's denial, Reck said she would consult other officials
in the German Government and revise the draft proposal. The
German Government will probably submit its revised draft to
select Partners, such as those in the Small Group, for
consultation well in advance of the November MTCR Plenary
Meeting in Athens.



3. (U) Post will report subsequent German response septel.
