1. This is an action request.

2. In response to ref A demarche on UNSCR 1718 obligations
and recent press reports that the United States has developed
a list of proposed luxury sanctions, Ministry of Foreign
Affairs North America Bureau Deputy Jack Su contacted
AIT/T/Econ on December 1 to obtain a copy of the proposed
list so that Taiwan can ensure none of those items are
shipped from Taiwan to North Korea. AIT requests Washington
guidance on whether the November 13 provisional list has been
updated and, if so, whether we can provide the updated list
to Taiwan.
