SUBJECT: DEMARCHE ON POSSIBLE NORTH KOREAN NUCLEAR TEST 
 
REF: STATE 166404 
 
Classified By: Charge d'Affaires Joseph R. Donovan for reasons 1.4(b), 
(d). 
 
¶1. (C)  On the evening of October 4, the Charge verbally 
delivered the unclassified portions of reftel to Chief 
Cabinet Secretary Yasuhisa Shiozaki.  Noting that these are 
the same points that we are sharing with other countries, the 
Charge stressed that a nuclear test by North Korea would be a 
"grave miscalculation."  He emphasized that the United States 
would stand with its allies in the region and would be 
seeking a Presidential Statement at the UN to discourage 
North Korea from testing a nuclear device.  The Charge noted 
that he would be meeting with Foreign Minister Taro Aso on 
October 5, the earliest that Aso would be available, to 
deliver the same message and additional, classified points. 
Shiozaki thanked the Charge and concurred with the message. 
He encouraged close cooperation and coordination on this 
issue.
