REF: STATE 28280
Classified By: PolMinCouns Brian Flora. Reasons: 1.4 (b) and (d).
1. (C) Responding to reftel points on cross-group stationing, Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) NATO Deputy Director Isabelle Poupart said Canada would join us in our effort to get the First Option adopted. She noted, however, that, like the U.S., Canada could live with the Second Option or the Third Option if that was what it took to get agreement. Poupart said she would make sure the Canadian Mission to NATO was aware of Ottawa's view of the matter, and encourage already close collaboration with U.S. counterparts.
