SUBJECT: NON-PAPER ON DPRK NUCLEAR PROGRAMS DELIVERED 
 
REF: SECSTATE 105500 
 
Classified By: Acting Pol M/C Colin Cleary.  Reason 1.4 (B/D). 
 
(C) We delivered July 31 reftel non-paper to Oleg Davydov, 
Senior Counselor, MFA Korea Desk and a participant in the 
Six-Party Talks.  On August 1, Davydov shared the following 
initial GOR response: 
 
-- The paper was shared with Ambassador Grigoriy Berdennikov, 
the GOR's representative to the Six-Party First Working Group 
- Denuclarization of the Korean peninsula. 
 
--Davydov termed the paper, "complicated, interesting and 
rich in content," which shows "U.S. hard work."  At this 
point, the GOR can only provide a preliminary "political" 
reaction because of the topic's technical complexity. 
 
--In the absence of a model to follow, future negotiations 
are bound to be arduous.  First of all, Pyongyang has always 
denied the existence of any Uranium program in North Korea. 
Through contacts with Kim Gye Kwan, the chief North Korean 
negotiator for the Six-Party Talks, the GOR understands that 
North Korea does not consider the list of nuclear weapons as 
part of what needs to be declared.  The agreement could come 
at a later stage but for the time being, this perceived 
discrepancy in interpretation of the February 13, 2007 
document could lead to another impasse. 
 
--The paper could provide a basis for a new form of 
cooperation but will require long and thorough consultations 
among all the parties.
