PLEASE PASS TO PM/DTCC-BLUE LANTERN COORDINATOR.

E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ETTC KOMC KSEP YM
SUBJECT: YEMEN BLUE LANTERN ANNUAL UPDATE

REF: SECSTATE 205022

1. POST BLUE LANTERN POC: Julie Kim Johnson, Economic and
Commercial Officer; phone 011-967-303-155, extension 2719
(IVG 469-2719); e-mail: JohnsonJK@state.gov; fax
011-967-303-183; estimated departure date Summer 2006.

2. LOCAL CONDITIONS: The various ROYG military branches and
agencies react differently to Blue Lantern checks. Some,
such as the Air Force, are less likely to comply fully than
others. Poor inventory controls mean that some ROYG military
agencies are not so much unwilling as unable to locate
commodities in question. Inventory, inventory control, and
detailed, computerized record keeping are weak points in
Yemeni military agencies.

3. EMBASSY RESOURCES: Post has appointed one econ/commoff as
the lead on Blue Lantern checks. Under normal conditions,
thirty days are enough to comply with the checks. However,
if a military organization does not which to cooperate it
will likely delay compliance rather than refuse the Blue
Lantern check. In such cases more than 30 days may be
required to determine the ROYG's intentions.
