SUBJECT: GOI: NEW DESIGNATIONS LAW SHOULD BE BROUGHT TO THE
CABINET IN LATE OCTOBER

REF: A. STATE 80168
B. TEL AVIV 1411

1. Per reftel "A", econoff transmitted the new list of UN
1267 designations to Roy Keidar, Legal Advisor to the Israeli
National Security Council (NSC). On August 7, Keidar
responded to econoff to inform him that the GOI still did not
have the capacity to designate the new UN 1267 entities
within its current legal framework (see reftel "B").

2. Keidar updated econoff on the status of Israel's pending
initiative to adopt a procedure that would allow it to come
into compliance with UN 1267. Keidar told econoff that the
NSC intends to bring the new framework it has developed
before the cabinet at the end of October. He added, however,
that "as always in Israel," final approval would be subject
to political considerations. NOTE: The NSC intends to adopt
retroactively all US domestic designations and those of the
UN 1267 committee as soon as the Cabinet approves of the new
procedure. END NOTE.
