(S)  On July 15, MFA's Americas Department Head Talgat Kaliev 
passed us an overflight clearance request submitted to the 
GOK from North Korea's official flag carrier Air Koryo.  The 
request is for an Air Koryo IL-62 aircraft to travel on 
charter pax flight from Pyongyang International Airport 
(listed by its civil aviation identifier code 0III) to Tehran 
Mehrabad International Airport (listed by code ZKPY).  The 
flight leaves North Korea on July 28 and returns July 31. 
The request was filed by Dubai-based United Aviation Services 
(UAS).  (Comment: UAS is a flight operations company that 
frequently acts as an intermediary for diplomatic overflight 
and landing clearances. End comment.)  Kaliev told us that 
Kazakhstan will likely deny the overflight clearance, just as 
it denied the clearance, on our request, to a North Korea - 
Syria flight in April (reftel).
