SIPDIS

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: EU MD RS CA PREL PBTS CVIS OSCE
SUBJECT: CANADA JOINS U.S., EU SANCTIONS AGAINST
TRANSNISTRIA

REF: SECSTATE 52179

1. (SBU) On 27 February Political Counselor discussed the
proposed visa sanctions against Transnistrian officials with
John McNiesh, Eastern European Desk Officer for the Canadian
Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT).

2. (SBU) McNeish said that representatives of the U.S. and
Canadian OSCE Missions in Vienna had already discussed the
imposition of visa sanctions. Canada was fully on board and
had entered Igor Smirnov's name into their visa lookout
system. He noted that there were unconfirmed rumors that
Smirnov was also in possession of a Canadian passport. This
was being looked into and his name was entered into their
border look-out data base, so he would be stopped in either
case. If we were aware of other aliases, spellings, or
permutations of his name, Canada would take action on this
information as well.
