Dear Ms. Singh:
I refer to our letter dated February 18, 2005, regarding the release of certain Department of State material under the Freedom of Information Act (Title 5 USC Section 552) .
As you may recall, further coordination was required before a decision could be made as to the release of one of the documents in Segment PRM001 previously retrieved in response to your request. The coordination has now been completed for that document and we find that it may be released with excisions. A copy of the document is enclosed.
The material in the excised portions of the document released in part is currently and properly classified under Executive Order 12958 in the interest of national defense or
foreign relations. As such, it is exempt from release under subsection (b) (1) of the Freedom of Information Act.
In the case of a document released in part, all non-exempt

material that is reasonably segregable from the exempt material has been released.
Sincerely, I
