I will initiate talks with the chairman of the Pakistani Atomic Energy Commission. During an earlier meeting, said person expressed their interest in obtaining a control system comparable to the one at [the Hungarian nuclear power plant in] Paks.
Our commercial counselor informed me that in the meantime, [the officials in] Paks had been contacted at an appropriate level, and that the Hungarian side was interested in the sale.
In all probability, [the Pakistanis] would like to purchase the control system for the 300-MW power plant to be provided by China.
The purpose of the meeting is to clarify whether the establishment of the power plant would be fully under IAEA supervision or not. Concerning the Indian standpoint on the power plant sale, see [Ciphered Telegraph] No. 219 [sent November 18, 1989].
