(S) Sergey Savelyev, MFA Section for International Security 
Director, told Poloff on June 9 that Kazakhstan has not yet 
made a decision as to whether it will pursue the open MESA 
seat on the IAEA Board of Governors. According to Savelyev, 
the MFA has sent instructions to its diplomatic mission in 
Vienna to investigate the procedures for candidacy.  He also 
said that it will take several weeks for relevant agencies to 
review the issue and he asked Poloff when the deadline for 
application will be.  Poloff responded that he did not know 
the answer but would find out.  Finally, Savelyev noted that 
while the MFA is likely ready to endorse the idea in order to 
support the U.S., other agencies do not see any practical 
value for Kazakhstan to pursue a BOG seat.
