The talking points and the President's October 9 speech on
the North Korean nuclear test were delivered to Nasser
Bourita, Director of United Nations and International
Organizations, in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on October
12 (reftel A). These points followed the October 6 demarche
delivered on the possibility of the North Korean test (reftel
B). Bourita said that the October 13 speech by the Moroccan
representative in Vienna condemned the test,that it was a
threat to international security, that the proliferation of
nuclear weapons is unnecessary, and that the Near East should
be a "nuclear free zone."
