SUBJECT: URANIUM IN DAR COMMON KNOWLEDGE TO SHIPPING
COMPANIES, PER SWISS DIPLOMAT

REF: A. DAR ES SALAAM 01376
B. UNVIE VIENNA 00601
C. KINSHASA 01309

Classified By: Charge d'Affaires D. Purnell Delly for reasons
1.4(b),(d) and (e).

1. (C) According to a senior Swiss diplomat, the shipment of
uranium through Dar es Salaam is common knowledge to two
Swiss shipping companies. Hans Peter Schoni, Counsellor at
the Embassy of Switzerland in Tanzania, referred to the
allegations of uranium from the Democratic Republic of Congo
(DRC) passing through Zambia and Tanzania en route to Iran,
but did not attribute to the shipping companies any opinion
of the source or destination of the alleged uranium. Poloff
pointed out that the reports were unsubstantiated, but Schoni
repeated that transport of uranium is common knowledge to the
two companies, though no one at either company would admit it
in writing. XXXXXXXXXXXX are both based
in Geneva and conduct verification and inspection work in
Tanzania.

2. (C) Mission has shared this information with all relevant
agencies at post which were unable to substantiate this or
any other such reports of uranium shipments. Nevertheless,
given the potential significance of such allegations we
believe it is important to report nonetheless.
