1. (SBU) China welcomed refs A and B information about expansion of the Global Initiative to Combat Nuclear Terrorism (GI) to include ten new members, MFA Arms Control Department official Yu Dunhai told poloff May 10. China continues to urge that the process for adding new members be refined, as noted ref D, Yu said.
2. (SBU) China welcomed ref C inormation about the upcoming third GI meeting in Kazakhstan. Yu said China is researching the possibility of making a presentation on Olympic security issues as requested by the American and Russian co-chairs and is consulting with other agencies about whether it can give such a presentation. Because this question involves experts outside the Foreign Ministry, China cannot provide an answer by the May 9 deadline and will be in touch as soon as it has a formal response, Yu said.
3. (SBU) Poloff conveyed further information about the FBI-sponsored GI conference in Miami and asked the Chinese to provide a delegation list by next week. Yu said China would send a delegation to the conference but may have difficulty meeting the suggested registration deadline. RANDT
