SUBJECT: CAMBODIA SUPPORTING UNSC RESOLUTION 1803 ON IRAN

C. STATE 19694

1. (SBU) The Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC)
understands the importance of UNSCR 1803, according to Tuy
Ry, the in-coming Director of the International Organizations
Department at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Ry told
Pol/Ec Section Chief March 12 that Cambodia is actively
enforcing restrictions on Iran related to UNSCR 1737 so that
it is in full compliance with that earlier resolution. Ry
stated that the RGC was committed to take further steps and
adopt any necessary measures to effectively implement UNSCR
1803.

2. (SBU) COMMENT: Tuy Ry seemed to be well-briefed on RGC
efforts to enforce UNSCR 1737, referring to lists of dual use
items passed to various Cambodian agencies to ensure they
were not trans-shipped through Cambodia. Although Ry was
confident UNSCR 1803 would also be adhered to and
implementation reports submitted to the Security Council, we
would provide a cautionary note that RGC capabilities in the
areas of export controls or border security are weak.

3. (SBU) BIO NOTE: Tuy Ry comes to MFA/IO from a posting
in Brussels where he was assigned to the EU. Before that he
was at the RGC mission in Geneva. Tuy Ry has a wife and two
children. A daughter who resides in Los Angeles has two
young sons.
