1. (SBU) Almaz Tulebayev, Director of the Ministry of Energy 
and Mineral Resources (MEMR) Department of Nuclear Energy and 
International Affairs, told Pol-Econ Chief on December 22 
that Kazakhstan is prepared to hold talks on the final 
disposition of BN-350 spent fuel on or after January 20. 
According to Tulebayev, the Kazakhstan delegation will be led 
by Timur Zhantikin, Chairman of the Atomic Energy Committee. 
He expects that the delegation will also include 
representatives from MEMR, Kazatomptrom, the KNB, the 
National Nuclear Center, and the Ministries of Foreign 
Affairs, Interior, Environment, and Emergency Situations. 
 
2. (SBU) Tulebayev said that the fuel must be taken from 
Aktau quickly, calling the current location unsatisfactory. 
He agreed that it would be useful to have a discussion of 
permanent disposition options.  Tulebayev told Pol-Econ Chief 
that Kazakhstan will begin to compile a list of suggested 
agenda items. He also asked Pol-Econ Chief for the U.S. 
agenda and a list of U.S. participants.  Pol-Econ Chief 
informed Tulebayev that the U.S. will soon send Kazakhstan a 
Terms of Reference document.
