(SBU) On May 31, poloff again raised points in reftels A and
B, regarding the USG position on UNSCR 1747, with MFA Chief
of Multilateral Affairs Mario Rivera. Poloff urged Rivera to
ensure that the GOES submits their report to the 1747
Sanctions Committee. Rivera acknowledged that the GOES
should have done this by now, but said the MFA was still
waiting for input from the Ministries of Defense and Public
Security before they could make their report, which he hoped
would be soon. Poloff shared the U.S. report contained in
reftel B, and Rivera promised they would study the USG
position carefully. Poloff also raised reftel A points about
a broad definition of arms for UNSCR 1747. Rivera did not
have an immediate reaction to this, saying only that in
general terms, the GOES supports sanctions against Iran, and
is worried about their noncompliance. He promised to study
the issue in greater detail and present this position to the
Salvadoran Ministry of Defense as well. Post will continue
to follow up and report any updates on the GOES position
septel.
