1.  (C)  We discussed U.S. APEC priorities on August 2 with 
MFA APEC Section Chief Pavel Alyanov and sought his views on 
Russian priorities at the Senior Officials Meeting (SOM) in 
September.  Alyanov said Russia shared many of the same goals 
as the U.S. in APEC and particularly agreed on the importance 
of security and counterterrorism issues.  Moscow supported an 
extension of the Counter Terrorism Task Force's mandate, but 
for now Moscow had no candidate in mind to serve as the 
group's chairperson. 
 
2.  (C)  Reviewing Russian priorities for APEC, Alyanov 
highlighted Moscow's role as co-sponsor of APEC's 
intercultural and interfaith dialogue.  He said the format 
for the dialogue had not yet been defined, but Russia 
expected the SOM to clarify the way forward.  Moscow also 
sought to encourage more involvement by private businesses in 
APEC projects and indicated Russia would emphasize G-8 topics 
such as energy security.  Alyanov mentioned Moscow's interest 
in transportation security, but did not outline any specific 
initiatives.  He suggested that it would be useful for the 
Russian and U.S. delegations to meet on the margins of the 
SOM to discuss APEC counterterrorism initiatives.
