 Barsegov said he was very pleased that we had notified the

regarding the nature of the meeting and to clarify the 
proposed discussions.  Barsegov took particular note of the 
paper on the Chinese ASAT test that the U.S. would provide to

would continue to keep the GOR informed of the outcomes of 
any future NASA - CNSA meetings.

NASA's discussions with the CNSA.
