¶1.  (C) Poloff relayed reftel points to Geeraard Vanhouche, 
Counselor for Asian Affairs in the Belgian Foreign Ministry. 
Vanhouche said Belgium was pleased with the adoption of UNSCR 
1718 and supported the measure.  Ambassador Korologos also 
spoke with FM De Gucht to urge continued support for UNSCR 
¶1718.  In press interviews delivered on October 15, De Gucht 
again condemned North Korea's nuclear test and supported a 
firm UN Security Council response. 
 
¶2.  (C) Commenting on meetings that three North Korean 
parliamentarians had at the European Parliament last week, 
Vanhouche said Belgium was debating whether to have more 
contacts with North Korea at a working level, but would not 
do so at high or senior levels.  Vanhouche said no meetings 
were planned in the near future, especially not at Vice 
Minister level or above.
