Classified By: ADCM Eric A Johnson for reasons 1.4 (b) & (d) 
 
(C) On June 1, we delivered Ref A points to Arti Hilpus, 
MFA Director for the First Political Department 
(responsible for Security and Arms Control), on developing 
a unified NATO response to Russia's request for an 
extraordinary conference to discuss the CFE (Conventional 
Forces in Europe) Treaty concerns.  On June 6, Hilpus 
informed us that Estonia fully agrees with the U.S. 
position and strongly believes that NATO needs a unified 
response to Russia's recent "misleading and unfortunate" 
statements on the CFE Treaty.  It is still Estonia's 
intention of acceding to the Treaty once the adapted CFE 
Treaty is in force.  However, Hilpus was unwilling to 
discuss the details of Estonia's accession and possible 
national commitments before the adapted CFE Treaty is in 
force.  On June 6, we delivered Ref B points to Kristjan 
Priik, Second Secretary in the MFA's First Political 
Department.  Priik said the MFA would have a response to 
these additional points by June 7.
