purpose stated on the license. Department requests that
Embassy conduct a site visit to Satori in order to provide an
assessment of its business operations, on-site security, and
general reliability as a recipient of United States Munitions
List (USML) items. POC at Satori is Karine Charlemagne,
Purchasing Manager, TEL: 33-0-1-46-62-73-00; reference

questions are offered as suggested guidance with Satori:

establishing it as the end user of item listed in paragraph 5
below?

- Who are Satori's main customers?

- Does the company understand the restrictions on United
States Munitions List (USML) articles, particularly regarding
