E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: TAGS
SUBJECT: SLOVAKIA IMPLEMENTS UNSCRS ON IRAN

REF: A. STATE 33674
B. STATE 34974

1. (SBU) Poloff delivered reftel points to Milan Ciganik,
Deputy Director of the MFA's Department for Disarmament,
Counter-Terrorism and OSCE, and Sona Baiova from the
Department of the UN and International Organizations. Baiova
explained that Slovakia implements UNSCRs such as 1737, 1747
an 1803 on a national level and in accordance with the terms
of the resolutions. The GoS sends implementation reports to
the UN within 40 days and reports any attempt to circumvent
the restrictions later on.

2. (SBU) Under Slovak law, relevant Ministries are
responsible for making themselves aware of UNSCRs that effect
their activities. However, the MFA sends a fax to relevant
ministries informing them of new restrictions they must
implement and requiring return notification of actions taken
to the MFA within 30 days. MFA then uses these return reports
to produce its implementation report for the UN Headquarters.

3. (SBU) Baiova showed Poloff a copy of the implementation
report for UNSCR 1803, which she expects to submit to the UN
before April 25. The National Bank, and the Ministries of
Finance, Interior, and Post and Telecommunications had all
been asked to take action to enforce UNSCR 1803. In addition,
MFA's Consular Department sent an instruction to all Slovak
Embassies and Consulates instructing them not to issue visas
to any of the individuals subject to vigilance, restraint or
a travel ban.
