REF: SECSTATE 103219
1. (SBU) Deputy PolCouns and UK Emboff jointly briefed MFA Deputy Director for Asymmetric Risks and Non-Proliferation Anca Jurcan on the results of the October 1 P5-1 talks with Iran in Geneva. Jurcan reiterated Romanian support for the American and British positions and expressed cautious optimism over the results of the talks, stating that the agreements in principle were the best possible results under the present circumstances.
2. (SBU) Jurcan said the Romanians viewed the October 1 preliminary agreements as a positive beginning but remained skeptical of Iran's intent to follow through with these latest commitments. She stressed that the United States could count on Romanian support for tough sanctions should Iran fail to live up to the agreements, but also noted it was a positive sign that Iran had agreed to a follow-up meeting October 18 in Vienna GITENSTEIN
