This is CWC-53-09



1. (U) This is an action request: see para 3.



2. (SBU) During the July session of the OPCW's
Executive Council (EC), Delrep Granger was elected
to chair consultations on financial matters (ref
A). Also with the new leadership of the Executive
Council that began in July, Iran, representing the
Asian Group, holds the EC Vice-Chair for
Administrative and Financial Matters. As reported
in Ref B, new Iranian Deputy Permanent
Representative Mahmoud Esfananinejad has stated his
intention to take on the role of Vice-Chairperson
actively.



3. (SBU) Given that Delrep's consultations fall
under the Vice-Chairperson for Administrative and
Financial Matters, Delrep is required to report to
Esfananinejad and to work with members of the
Iranian delegation in reporting back to the EC on
progress made in the consultations. Therefore, Del
requests Department guidance on how Delrep may
communicate and interact with members of the
Iranian Delegation to the OPCW to fulfill his
mandate.



4. (U) BEIK SENDS.
