SUBJECT: CANADA EAGER TO PARTICIPATE IN PSI MEETINGS IN
MIAMI
REF: STATE 132842
1. (SBU) Canada is eager to participate in the Proliferation
Security Initiative Operational Experts Group and outreach
meetings in May in Miami, according to Department of Foreign
Affairs and International Trade non-proliferation senior
policy advisor David MacDuff. MacDuff added that Canada is
particularly interested in the chance to discuss the global
and regional dimensions of the PSI and WMD-related
interdictions. MacDuff was already aware of the May meeting
in Miami, having attended the September OEG meeting in Paris.
MacDuff promised to circulate the reftel non-paper to
Department of National Defence colleagues, and said that the
U.S. can "count on strong Canadian participation in this
event."
