E.O. 12958: DECL: 05/30/2016 TAGS: IR, KNNP, PK, PREL SUBJECT: MUSHARRAF TELLS IRAN “STOP ENRICHMENT NOW”

REF: A. ISLAMABAD 9499 B. ISLAMABAD 9033

Classified By: Ambassador Ryan C. Crocker, Reasons 1.4 (b) and (d)

(S) Over the Memorial Day weekend, Pakistani Foreign Minister Kasuri offer a read out of the May 26 meeting between President Musharraf and Iranian First Vice President Davoudi (ref A). According to Kasuri, Musharraf told the visitors that Iran should stop all efforts to enrich uranium now, adding that Tehran' current policy was making life difficult for its neighbor, Pakistan. After offering a long justification of Iran's right to pursue a civilian nuclear energy program in the call on Musharraf, Davoudi privately told Kasuri that Iran is considering all options on the issue. Kasuri interpreted this to mean that the notion of cessation remains on the table. Kasuri also told the Ambassador that the Iranians' discussions here, as in the earlier talks in Bali (ref B), left him with the impression that Iran is eager to hold direct talks with the U.S. CROCKER
