AND ENVIRONMENTAL AFFAIRS, MR. PAOLO CONVERSI.  CONVERSI SAID 
THE VATICAN "IS INTERESTED" IN PARTICIPATING IN THE CODE OF 
CONDUCT BUT IS NOT YET DECIDED.  VATICAN REPS ATTENDED THE 
MARCH 2002 MADRID PREPARATORY MEETING ON THE CODE OF CONDUCT 
AND TWO REPS FROM THE NUNCIATURE IN THE HAGUE WILL ATTEND THE 
NEXT MEETING.  POST NOTES THAT THE VATICAN HAS SIGNED ON TO 
OTHER SUCH EFFORTS (E.G. THE CWC) IN ORDER TO LEND ITS MORAL 
VOICE TO DISARMAMENT.  WE WILL FOLLOW-UP WITH VATICAN 
CONTACTS AND URGE THEM TO SIGN UP TO THE INTERNATIONAL CODE 
OF CONDUCT AGAINST MISSILE PROLIFERATION AS WELL.
