Classified By: Political Counselor Kent Logsdon for reasons 1.4(b,d) 
 
1. (C) We relayed reftel points on a U.S. proposal to revise 
the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) approach to 
unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs)/cruise missiles December 5 to 
MFA Arms Control and Military Technical Cooperation 
Department Counselors Igor Kyzym and Oleh Belokoles.  We 
stressed the high priority that the U.S. places on the 
proposal and our interest in gaining consensus for its 
adoption in early 2007. 
 
2. (C) Kyzym said he would transmit our views to the 
technical experts in the National Space Agency of Ukraine 
(NSAU) for their examination and evaluation.  NSAU, which has 
the lead in the Ukrainian government, would formulate the 
Ukrainian position, taking into account USG views as 
contained in the non-papers.  Kyzym said he understood a 
parallel effort was underway within the Wassenaar Arrangement 
to ensure that both regimes' treatment of UAVs/cruise 
missiles was harmonized.
