Brazil- United States. Access to advanced

technology. U.S. initiative on non-proliferation.

Letter by President Bush.

Reference my cable 1418. May I suggest that in the reply to the letter addressed by President Bush to President Collor on 3/7/92, mention be made to our disappointment with the inclusion of Brazil in the list of projects in the space field recently published by the Department of Commerce (Supplement 6, section 778 of the Export Administration Regulations). The decision to include Brazilian projects among those subject to stricter export controls is not consistent, in our view, with the clear progress on non-proliferation both in the internal field and with regard to the international commitments, or with the positive results of the bilateral dialogue in this area.
