¶1. (U) PolOffs delivered reftel non-paper February 7 to

representatives of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA)

Departments of International Organizations (IO) and ASEAN

Affairs. One MFA official noted in the non-paper the line

reading, “The United State will seek support for other

measures to enforce the NPT.” He asked what the U.S. has in

mind for these specific additional enforcement measures. The

MFA also would like to know who will lead the U.S. REVCON

delegation to New York in May. Post would appreciate the

Department’s assistance in answering these questions. POC at

Embassy Bangkok is Colin Crosby, Political Officer. UNCLASS

¶2. (U) Regarding potential public diplomacy tools we might

use in Thailand, Post believes the standardized public

diplomacy products as described reftel, including brochures,

fact sheets and op-eds for placement, will be sufficient to

reinforce existing supportive attitudes in Thailand. The

Royal Thai Government (RTG) has been generally supportive of

our positions on related issues, and we do not expect them to

be less so during the REVCON. We can apply public diplomacy

tools as needed to reinforce positive Thai attitudes toward

NPT, but we do not expect to require targeted outreach tools

like high-level digital videoconferences. There is also no

indication in public media of prevalent misperceptions in

Thai public opinion that would require corrective public

diplomacy measures.
