1. (C) SUMMARY: U.S. TEAM SUCCESSFULLY CONCLUDED AD REF HOST 
COUNTRY 
AGREEMENT (HCA)  IN TALKS WITH ITALIAN OFFICIALS JUNE 21. 
TEAM BELIEVES 
THAT AD REF HCA PROTECTS FULLY U.S. INSPECTION RIGHTS WHEN 
ITALY IS THE 
INSPECTED STATE PARTY (ISP) AND  RIGHT OF THE UNITED STATES 
TO BE THE ISP. 
END SUMMARY. 
 
------------------------------------- 
COMPOSITION OF U.S. AND ITALIAN TEAMS

TEAM LEADER: MS. SALLY HORN, DIRECTOR, NON-PROLIFERATION 
POLICY, OFFICE 
OF SECDEF 
MR. WILLIAM RICHARD HADDAD, DOD 
MR. MICHAEL COFFEE, DOS

--------------------------------------- 
WHO IS THE INSPECTED STATE PARTY (ISP)? 
--------------------------------------- 
 
3. (C) BOTH SIDES RECOGNIZED THAT THE NEGOTIATIONS NEEDED TO 
ADDRESS THE 
ISSUE OF THE DEFINITION OF THE ISP.  THE ITALIAN TEAM AGREED 
THAT, WHEN U.S. 
SOVEREIGN VESSELS OR AIRCRAFT WERE THE SOLE OBJECT OF AN 
INSPECTION, THE 
UNITED STATES HAD THE EXCLUSIVE RIGHT TO BE THE ISP FOR 
INSPECTIONS OF ANY 
SUCH VESSELS AND AIRCRAFT IN ITALY.  CEVESE INITIALLY STATED 
THAT, WITH THE 
EXCEPTION OF SUCH SOVEREIGN VESSELS AND AIRCRAFT, ITALY ALONE 
WOULD BE THE 
ISP FOR INSPECTIONS CONDUCTED ON ITS SOIL SINCE IT ALONE HAD 
JURISDICTION AND 
CONTROL OVER FACILITIES ON ITS TERRITORY.   HORN REPLIED THAT 
WHILE THE 
UNITED STATES GENERALLY DOES NOT HAVE JURISDICTION OVER THE 
FACILITIES THAT 
IT USES IN ITALY, UNDER THE TERMS OF THE 1954 AGREEMENT 
                          SECRET 
 
PAGE 04        ROME  03280  01 OF 04  031539Z 
BETWEEN THE UNITED 
STATES OF AMERICA AND THE ITALIAN REPUBLIC REGARDING 
BILATERAL INFRASTRUCTURE 
IN IMPLEMENTATION OF ARTICLE III OF THE NORTH ATLANTIC TREATY 
AND THE 1995 
MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING CONCERNING THE USE OF 
INSTALLATIONS/ 
INFRASTRUCTURE IN ITALY, THE UNITED STATES HAS COMMAND 
RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE 
SAFETY AND SECURITY OF THE ASSETS AND PERSONNEL WITHIN THE 
FACILITIES THAT IT 
UTILIZES.  TO PERFORM THESE FUNCTIONS, THE UNITED STATES MUST 
HAVE THE RIGHT 
TO PROTECT ITS INTERESTS DURING ANY INSPECTIONS OF ITS ASSETS 
IN ITALY. 
 
4.  (S)  HORN REMINDED THE ITALIAN TEAM THAT THERE WERE 
ADDITIONAL FACILITIES 
BEYOND SOVEREIGN VESSELS AND AIRCRAFT WHERE, GIVEN THE CWC,S 
CRITERIA OF 
"JURISDICTION OR CONTROL," THE UNITED STATES COULD 
LEGITIMATELY BE THE 
INSPECTED STATE PARTY.  IN THIS REGARD, AS AN EXAMPLE, SHE 
REMINDED THE 
ITALIAN TEAM THAT THE UNITED STATES ALONE HAD "CONTROL" OVER,

COUNTRY AGREEMENT (HCA) WITH ITALY 
 
AND 
RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE SECURITY OF, THE U.S. NUCLEAR VAULTS; 
THE U.S. 
COMMANDER ALONE WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PEOPLE AND EQUIPMENT 
INSIDE THESE 
FACILITIES.  THE ITALIAN TEAM AGREED THAT THE UNITED STATES 
WOULD SATISFY THE 
DEFINITION OF AN INSPECTED STATE PARTY IN THE CASE OF A 
CHALLENGE INSPECTION 
OF THESE VAULTS. 
 
5.  (S)  BASED ON THE ABOVE UNDERSTANDING AND THE ITALIAN 
DESIRE TO NOT 
SINGLE OUT FOR MENTION THE VAULTS, THE ITALIAN TEAM 
RELUCTANTLY AGREED TO 
INCLUDE IN THE HCA, GENERAL PROVISIONS THAT WOULD APPLY IN 
THE CASE THAT THE 
UNITED STATES WERE TO BE THE INSPECTED STATE PARTY.  IN 
AGREEING TO THIS, THE 
ITALIAN TEAM ALSO DECIDED TO INSERT LANGUAGE STATING THAT 
ITALY MAY 
UNILATERALLY DECIDE TO REJECT ACCESS TO AN INSPECTION TEAM IF 
ITALY IS NOT 
DESIGNATED THE INSPECTED STATE PARTY.  (NOTE:  THIS LANGUAGE, 
SUGGESTED BY 
THE U.S. TEAM TO ADDRESS ITALIAN POLITICAL SENSITIVITIES, IS 
SIMILAR TO THAT 
IN THE RECENTLY SIGNED U.S. HCA WITH THE GOVERNMENT OF 
AUSTRALIA.  IT STATES 
                          SECRET 
 
PAGE 03        ROME  03280  02 OF 04  031540Z 
AN OBVIOUS PREROGATIVE OF THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT, BUT DOES 
NOT COMMIT THE 
UNITED STATES TO TAKE ACTIONS THAT WE JUDGE WOULD VIOLATE OUR 
CWC OBLIGATIONS. 
END NOTE.) 
 
6. (C)  THE ITALIAN TEAM ALSO AGREED TO TEXT THAT WOULD 
PROVIDE THE UNITED 
STATES WITH THE NECESSARY RIGHTS TO PROTECT U.S. SECURITY 
INTERESTS WHEN 
ITALY IS THE ISP. 
 
--------------------------------------------- 
HANDLING INSPECTORS NOT ACCEPTED BY ONE PARTY 
--------------------------------------------- 
 
7. (C) HORN RAISED CONCERN OVER CERTAIN INSPECTORS THAT THE 
USG WOULD FIND 
UNACCEPTABLE, CITING, AS AN EXAMPLE, IRANIANS AND CUBANS. 
GEN. TRACCI 
OBSERVED THAT ONCE NOTIFIED OF AN INSPECTION, A CWC STATE 
PARTY COULD NOT 
REFUSE AN INSPECTOR.  HOWEVER, ONCE THE INSPECTION LIST 
CONTAINING THE NAMES 
OF THE INSPECTORS WAS RELEASED AND BEFORE ANY ACTUAL 
INSPECTION WAS 
ANNOUNCED, ANY CWC STATE PARTY MAY OBJECT TO INDIVIDUAL 
INSPECTORS.  ONCE 
THE UNITED STATES OBJECTED TO INDIVIDUAL INSPECTORS, 
INDICATED THE ITALIAN 
TEAM, ITALY WOULD OBJECT TO THE INCLUSION OF THE SAME 
                          SECRET 
 
PAGE 04        ROME  03280  02 OF 04  031540Z 
INDIVIDUALS ON THE 
INSPECTOR LIST FOR CHALLENGE INSPECTIONS INVOLVING U.S. 
ASSETS IN ITALY. 
THIS WAY, THESE INDIVIDUALS WOULD NOT BE INCLUDED ON THE 
INSPECTION TEAM. 
THE SIDES AGREED TO TEXT THAT STATES THAT EACH PARTY WILL 
NOTIFY THE OTHER 
PARTY OF ANY INSPECTORS TO WHOM IT OBJECTS AND THAT THE OTHER 
PARTY WILL 
SUBSEQUENTLY INFORM THE OPCW THAT IT OBJECTS TO THE INCLUSION 
OF THE SAME 
INSPECTORS FOR ANY CHALLENGE INSPECTIONS INVOLVING THE ASSETS 
OF BOTH 
PARTIES.  (COMMENT:  THIS WILL REQUIRE THE UNITED STATES 
ROUTINELY TO NOTIFY 
ITALY OF INSPECTORS TO WHOM IT OBJECTS.  IT ALSO WILL REQUIRE 
ITALY TO NOTIFY 
THE TS ROUTINELY OF THESE INDIVIDUALS AND SOME COOPERATION 
FROM THE TECHNICAL 
SECRETARIAT AS IT MAY NOT BE IMMEDIATELY CLEAR WHETHER A 
 
SIPDIS 
PARTICULAR CHALLENGE 
INSPECTION WILL INVOLVE U.S. ASSETS.  END COMMENT.)

------------------------------------ 
 
8. (C)  THE ITALIANS WERE UNWILLING TO AGREE TO LANGUAGE THAT 
WOULD 
EXPLICITLY REQUIRE ANY SAMPLES TAKEN IN FACILITIES OPERATED 
BY THE UNITED 
STATES TO BE ANALYZED ON SITE OR IN THE UNITED STATES SINCE 
THEY BELIEVED 
THAT WOULD VIOLATE ITALIAN LAW AND PUT ITALY IN NONCOMPLIANCE 
WITH THE CWC. 
HOWEVER, THE ITALIAN TEAM DID AGREE THAT THE UNITED STATES 
COULD PLACE 
LIMITATIONS ON ANALYSIS PRIOR TO PERMITTING THE TS INSPECTION 
TEAM TO TAKE A 
SAMPLE, CITING SUCH ADVANCE RESTRICTIONS AS FULLY CONSISTENT 
WITH THE MANAGED 
ACCESS PROVISIONS OF THE CONVENTION.  GIVEN THE ITALIAN 
RATIONALE AND 
AGREEMENT THAT THE UNITED STATES COULD RESTRICT SAMPLING AND 
ANALYSIS, THE 
UNITED STATES AGREED TO REPLACE THE EXPLICIT REFERENCE TO 
SAMPLING IN ARTICLE 
V(C)(2)(B) OF THE DRAFT HCA WITH LANGUAGE THAT WOULD PERMIT 
THE UNITED STATES 
"TO TAKE ANY MEASURES THAT ARE NECESSARY TO PROTECT ITS 
NATIONAL SECURITY." 
IT WAS UNDERSTOOD BY BOTH PARTIES THAT THIS MORE EXPANSIVE 
LANGUAGE INCLUDED 
THE RIGHT TO PLACE RESTRICTIONS ON, INCLUDING PROHIBITING,

THE TAKING OF 
SAMPLES SHOULD THE INSPECTION TEAM REFUSE TO AGREE THAT THE 
SAMPLES WOULD BE 
ANALYZED ON SITE, USING THE U.S. MOBILE LABORATORY. 
 
9.  (U)  THE ITALIAN TEAM AGREED THAT THE UNITED STATES MAY 
BRING ITS MOBILE 
LABORATORY TO ITALY FOR A CHALLENGE INSPECTION.  THE ITALIANS 
DID NOT BELIEVE 
THAT SEPARATE PROVISIONS RELATED TO ENTRY OF THE MOBILE LAB 
WERE NECESSARY, 
BUT DID AGREE TO INCLUDE LANGUAGE IN THE HCA OBLIGATING ITALY 
TO EXPEDITE ITS 
ENTRY INTO ITALY.  THE ITALIANS SUGGESTED THAT THE LAB SHOULD 
BE TRANSPORTED 
DIRECTLY TO THE FACILITY OPERATED BY THE UNITED STATES THAT 
WOULD BE 
INSPECTED SINCE IT WOULD ONLY BE USED AT THAT LOCATION AND 
WOULD NOT BE 
NEEDED AT THE POINT OF ENTRY. 
 
--------------------------------------------- ------------ 
PROVISIONS FOR CONDUCTING TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT INSPECTIONS 
--------------------------------------------- ------------ 
 
10. (C)   THE ITALIAN TEAM AGREED TO PROVIDE FOR MAXIMUM U.S. 
PARTICIPATION 
IN THE TECHNICAL EQUIPMENT  INSPECTION.  THE ITALIANS WILL 
DELAY THIS PART OF 
THE INSPECTION AS LONG AS POSSIBLE CONSISTENT WITH THE TREATY 
                          SECRET

REPORTED THAT THE 
TECHNICAL SECRETARIAT HAS AGREED TO ALLOW ITALY TO CONDUCT 
TECHNICAL 
EQUIPMENT INSPECTIONS AT INSPECTION SITES INSTEAD OF AT THE 
POINT OF ENTRY. 
ITALY WANTED TO INCLUDE LANGUAGE ON EQUIPMENT INSPECTIONS AT 
THE INSPECTION 
SITE.  WHILE THE U.S. TEAM APPRECIATED THE MERIT IN THIS 
APPROACH -- 
PARTICULARLY IN THAT IT WOULD EXTEND THE TIME FOR ARRIVAL OF 
THE U.S. HOST 
TEAM CONTINGENT -- THE PRACTICE DOES NOT APPEAR TO BE 
PERMITTED BY THE 
CONVENTION.  THE U.S. TEAM INDICATED THAT, THEREFORE, IT 
SHOULD NOT BE 
INCLUDED IN THE HCA TEXT.  ITALY AGREED TO DROP THE EXPLICIT 
REFERENCE TO 
EQUIPMENT INSPECTIONS AT THE INSPECTION SITE.  THE OUTCOME -- 
NO EXPLICIT
