Classified By: Pol-Econ Chief Steve Fagin, Reasons 1.4 (b) and (d) 
 
1.(S) We delivered ref A talking points on a North Korean 
flight of proliferation concern on September 2 to Sergey 
Savelyev, Deputy Director of the MFA's Department of 
Multilateral Cooperation.  Savalyev did not provide any 
additional information on the actions Kazakhstan took 
concerning this flight nor on the Government of Kazakhstan's 
policies regarding overflight clearance for similar flights. 
However, he expressed Kazakhstan's continuing commitment to 
preventing flights of proliferation concern. 
 
2. (S) Savelyev thanked the USG for its promise to provide a 
response to his inquiry regarding how other countries in the 
region are dealing with such flights.  He explained that this 
information would assist him in explaining Kazakhstan's 
crucial role in non-proliferation to senior Kazakhstani 
government officials.  Savalyev also asked how the United 
States can be certain that this flight was not redirected 
through other countries in the region, in particular China 
and Pakistan.  Savalyev stated that for the Government of 
Kazakhstan, understanding China's position on DPRK-Iran 
flights was "crucially important."
