REF: STATE 146521 
 
Classified By: Political Counselor Kent Logsdon for reasons 1.4(b,d) 
 
1. (U) We drew on ref A October 23 to brief MFA Arms Control 
and Military Technical Cooperation Department Director 
Volodymyr Belashov and Counselor Rustam Rustamov on the 
results of the U.S.-Russia "2-plus-2" discussions held 
October 12-13 in Moscow.  Belashov, who was on his way the 
same afternoon to a CFE-related meeting in Vienna, noted the 
information was very timely and thanked us. 
 
2. (C) On the Intermediate Range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty, 
Belashov noted that, while Ukraine is not a party to the 
treaty, it had decided in 1992 to voluntarily observe the 
treaty's requirements.  He expressed understanding of the 
Russian desire to expand INF requirements to other countries, 
but also noted that public statements by Russian officials 
indicated a Russian willingness to abandon the INF treaty if 
its provisions were not expanded to include other countries. 
Belashov also expressed skepticism that the Russians would be 
willing to undertake any additional steps regarding Georgia 
and Moldova to meet their Istanbul commitments.
