SUBJECT: DPRK:  AMBASSADOR INFORMS GOR ABOUT RESOLUTION OF 
BDA DISPUTE 
 
Classified By: Ambassador William J. Burns.  Reasons 1,4 (B/D) 
 
1.  (C) On April 10, the Ambassador alerted DFM Losyukov to 
the resolution of the Banco Delta Asia (BDA) dispute and 
urged the GOR to publicly welcome the breakthrough and to 
push North Korea to fulfill its February 13 obligations. 
Losyukov said he understood the significance of the message, 
welcomed Macao's action and would follow up.  (Note: 
Losyukov is departing Moscow on a swing through Asia and will 
return April 23.) 
 
2.  (C) Oleg Davydov, a Senior Advisor to DFM Losyukov and 
participant of the Six-Party Talks, told us April 11 that the 
GOR was treating official statements regarding the resolution 
of the dispute with caution, given the DPRK's 
unpredictability.  However, he underlined that a conclusive 
resolution would "add a political impulse to the process and 
open many new doors."  Davydov asked that the GOR be provided 
with a U.S. readout about the resolution.  He also requested 
that the dates for the next round be notified early enough to 
give other parties time to prepare; normally, the GOR would 
like to have at least one week for a regular round of the 
talks.  The ministerial meeting, which Russia supported, 
required even more preparation to avoid it becoming an empty 
"propaganda" meeting, he added.  Davydov emphasized that the 
GOR saw a true partnership with the U.S. in the Six-Party 
Talks and hoped that the U.S. kept the Russian team in the 
loop. 
 
3.  (C) Comment and Action Request:  Moscow is eager to see 
the Six Party Talks restart and will weigh in with Pyongyang 
to encourage the DPRK to fulfill its obligations.  Sharing 
information with the GOR about the resolution of the BDA 
dispute will aid in this process.
