(S) Polmiloff discussed reftel points with MFA Senior Advisor for Nonproliferation and Nuclear Affairs Ceta Noland on February 25. Noland appreciated the points, and claimed to be aware of Inter Connection Technologies (InCo Tech). She needed to confirm, but thought the GONL might have already issued a MTCR catch-all against InCo Tech. At any rate, Noland said she would pass on the points to the relevant Dutch intelligence authorities; any response will most likely be handled through those channels, she added. ¶2. (S) Noland commented in passing on Aviation Services International (ASI), noting that ASI Director Robert Kraaipoel appears to be maintaining relations with Iran as he was recently seen at a reception at the Iranian Embassy in The Hague. That said, Noland understood that ASI has ceased its attempts to export material to Iran. She asked for an update on the U.S. case against ASI; polmiloff replied that he had no updates on the case, which was being handled through the Department of Justice. Schofer
