REF: STATE 33907 
 
Classified By: Political M/C Alice G. Wells.  Reasons: 1.4(B/D). 
 
1.  (C)  We previewed reftel U.S. initiatives to be tabled at 
the Helsinki ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) meeting with Dmitriy 
Lukiyantsev, a Counselor in the MFA's Department of ASEAN and 
Asia Pacific Regional Affairs.  Lukiyantsev said the GOR was 
interested in encouraging the ARF to be more responsive to 
new threats and challenges and noted Moscow's longstanding 
interest in non-proliferation issues.  He promised to inform 
the Department Director, who will attend the March 28-30 
Helsinki meeting, about the U.S. initiatives. 
 
2.  (C)  Lukiyantsev identified Russia's top ARF priority 
this year as securing adoption of an ARF Chairman's statement 
endorsing "inter-civilizational dialogue."  The GOR views ARF 
endorsement of a dialogue as an important step for the 
organization's counterterrorism efforts.  Russia will provide 
a short presentation on the statement in Finland and hoped 
for a more substantive discussion at the May 25 Senior 
Officials Meeting, with adoption of the statement at the 
August ministerial.  Lukiyantsev said that Japan and 
Singapore had already provided the GOR with a favorable 
reaction to an early draft.
