SUBJECT: KAZAKHSTAN - DEMARCHE DELIVERED REGARDING MESA 
GROUP SEAT ON IAEA BOARD OF GOVERNORS 
 
REF: STATE 99746 
 
Classified By: Pol-Econ Chief Steven Fagin, Reasons 1.4 (b) and (d) 
 
 1. (C) Charge delivered reftel demarche to Deputy Foreign 
Minister Sarybay on September 23, stressing that the U.S. is 
marshalling support for Afghanistan's candidacy for the open 
IAEA BOG MESA seat, but would like to assist Kazakhstan in 
resolving questions about its membership in the IAEA MESA 
group, with a view to supporting a Kazakhstani candidacy in a 
future cycle.  Sarybay took the points relatively well, 
responding that "to be honest, this is a good option for us." 
 Kazakhstan, he said, was surprised about doubts regarding 
its MESA membership.  The government was not well-prepared 
for a 2008 BOG candidacy, so putting off Kazakhstan's 
candidacy until next year would provide for more time to 
prepare the groundwork for a MESA seat bid, Sarybai contended.
