Classified By: Global Affairs Unit Chief Don L. Brown for
reasons 1.4 (b) and (d).

(S) During a recent meeting, German MFA Export Control
Division Desk Officer, Wiebke Wacker, specifically thanked
the USG for the nonpapers passed to the GOG in 2006 and 2008
regarding the shipment of tritium gas to Iran's Atomic Energy
Organization of Iran (AEOI). Wacker volunteered that the
information in the 2006 nonpaper was "very useful" and
further stated "before we received the (2006) nonpaper, we
knew nothing." Wacker named Ahmad Rajabi as the
German/Iranian from the German firm Campro Scientific in
connection with this case. Wacker said that she was not at
liberty to comment on whether the information in the 2006
nonpaper contributed in any way to the December 2007 tritium
gas seizure in Amsterdam's Schipol Airport.
