Reasons 1.5 (b) and (d) 
 
(C) Further to reftel discussions, Foreign Affairs informed 
us that the Canadian Head of Mission in Vienna met with IAEA 
DG El-Baradei on April 7 to urge him to take a tough approach 
on Iran's nuclear program.  El-Baradei responded by defending 
his non-confrontational approach, and gave no indication that 
he intends to change course.  Foreign Affairs noted that the 
Canadian Head of Mission is still planning to host a luncheon 
on April 10 for like-minded IAEA member countries to discuss 
Iran.  Canada is trying to attract a more broadly 
representative group than the one that met on North Korea, 
and hopes that some NAM countries will join.
