s 1.5(b and d)

1. (C) Econ Chief delivered ref points and background on
Aug. 30 to Delia Villamonte, Director General for
International Organizations, and Leoncio Hernandez, Director
for Anti-Terrorist Issues, both with the Ministry of Foreign
Affairs (MFA). Neither Villamonte nor Hernandez offered any
immediate reaction, other than to note that they would follow
the matter closely through Panama's mission to the UN and
that they would share any information they might encounter on
the subject individuals. Econ Chief also delivered the same
material to Deputy Bank Superintendent Amauri Castillo. He
said the Bank Superintendent would follow up with any action
necessitated by the UN Sanction Committee's designation of
the Saudi Five, should the GOP find assets belonging to these
individuals in Panamanian banks.

2. (SBU) The MFA's Hernandez said the GOP hopes to bring
together various entities (such as the Bank Superintendent,
Financial Analysis Unit, and Public Registry) to ensure that
their personnel are sufficiently up to speed on the
requirements of UNSCR 1267. Post would appreciate the
Department's advice on potential USG training programs or
materials specific to UNSCR 1267 that might assist the GOP
accordingly.

Campbell On: the US demonising of Iran

Satan may not exist, but the Evil One has always been a handy tool for priests and politicians alike.

Currently, Iran is the latest bogey conjured up by Washington to (a) justify its foreign policy interventions and (b) distract attention from its foreign policy failures.

Once upon a time, the Soviet Union was the nightmare threat for the entire Cold War era – and since then the US has cast the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Islamic State in the same demonic role. Iran is now the latest example…More
