Classified By: A/POL Colin Cleary.  Reasons 1.4 (b and d). 
 
1.  (S) Chief of the MFA's Migration Section Aleksandr 
Chuplygin told us April 4 that in principle MFA had no 
objection to resettlement to the U.S. of the six North 
Koreans that UNHCR has referred (reftels).  Chuplygin 
underscored that the resettlement should be done discreetly 
and that any publicity on the North Koreans' arrival in the 
U.S. that suggested Russian involvement would be detrimental 
to any cooperation on future cases. 
 
2.  (S) Chuplygin said that the GOR would consider granting 
exit permission for these cases in keeping with its standard 
procedures; however, he noted the MFA was not the only 
ministry involved in such decisions, alluding to the 
participation of law enforcement and security agencies as 
well.  Chuplygin also said the GOR would want the six to 
depart using ICRC identification documents and to transit a 
third country before arriving in the U.S., in keeping with 
the "gentlemen's agreement" it had with UNHCR on the handling 
of such cases.
