1. (SBU) Almaz Tulebayev, Director of the Ministry of Energy 
and Mineral Resources (MEMR) Department of Nuclear Energy and 
International Affairs, told Pol-Econ Officer on January 10 
that Kazakhstan agrees to the dates of January 24-25 for 
senior level policy discussions on the final disposition of 
BN-350 spent fuel.  Tulebayev said that Timur Zhantikin (who 
also attended the meeting), Chairman of the Atomic Energy 
Committee, will lead the Kazakhstani delegation.  The 
Kazakhstanis should be able to pass on a full list of their 
participants and a draft agenda within one to two days, 
Tulebayev added. 
 
2. (SBU) Tulebayev stressed Kazakhstan's need to receive the 
draft Terms of Reference and a list of U.S. participants as 
soon as possible.  He asked whether two days would be 
sufficient for discussions on the complicated topic of final 
disposition and if, after the discussions, the Kazakhstani 
delegation would have a deliverable document for its 
government.  Pol-Econ officer said that the aim of the 
January discussions is to initiate discussion of permanent 
disposition options and to finalize the Terms of Reference. 
Finally, Tulebayev asked about the level of classification of 
the discussions.  Pol-Econ Officer promised to consult with 
the Department.
