COMMITTEE MANDATE EXTENSION

REF: STATE 34968

Classified By: Acting Political Minister-Counselor Jonathan Cohen for R
easons 1.4 (B) and (D)



1. (C) Poloff delivered reftel demarche to Italian MFA
Director for Arms Control and Nonproliferation Emanuele
Farruggia on April 4. Farruggia had seen the Russian draft
language for the technical rollover and was satisfied with
it, but said he would take the U.S. position in favor of a
strengthened five-year mandate renewal on board. Farruggia
subsequently contacted Poloff to advise that the MFA had
instructed the Italian Mission to the UN to support the P-3
language in favor of a strengthened five-year mandate. He
agreed that the five-year extension would better allow the
Committee carry out long-term plans for outreach to member
states seeking to comply with the resolution and provide
technical assistance to states designing domestic
counterproliferation controls.
