SUBJECT: FINNISH RESPONSE: IMPLEMENTING UNSCR 1747:
ADVOCATING A BROAD DEFINITION OF "ARMS AND RELATED MATERIEL"

REF: STATE 67462

1. PolChief delivered subject demarche to Tarja Pesamaa,
Deputy Director of the Finnish MFA's Unit for Arms Control,
Disarmament and Non-Proliferation. Pesamaa said that the GOF
agrees with the US that broad interpretation and consistent
standards of implementation are crucial for UNSCR 1747 to be
effective. She drew attention to the EU Council's resolution
on implementation which, among other things, prevents sales
of all goods on the NSG and MCTR lists. Finland supports
this resolution and the strong standards it sets for all EU
members, Pesamaa said.

2. She also explained that Finland has had no 1737 reports to
submit, in part because of the GOF's active to Finnish
companies warning that they approach any transaction with
Iran with the utmost caution.
