REF: STATE 184057 
 
1. (SBU) Poloff delivered reftel points to MFA International 
Security Section Advisor Kayrat Sarzhanov on November 16. 
Sarzhanov stated that the GOK understands the necessity of 
implementing measures to uphold its obligations under the 
Chemical Weapons Convention.  Other agencies have caused 
delay, said Sarzhanov, but the MFA will push to resolve all 
outstanding issues. 
 
2. (SBU) Sarzhanov also called Kazakhstan's failure to ratify 
the Biological Weapons Convention a "big concern." The MFA 
supports ratification, but Parliament has been slow to act, 
according to Sarzhanov.  Nevertheless, Sarzhanov remains 
optimistic, telling Poloff that he expects Kazakhstan to 
ratify the Convention in the near future.  He promised that 
the MFA will again urge the Parliament to take the steps 
necessary for ratification.
