SUBJECT: GERMANY REQUESTED TO PROVIDE IDENTIFIER
INFORMATION ON ENTITIES AND INDIVIDUALS IN THE ANNEXES OF
UNSCRS 1737 AND 1747

REF: STATE 89511

1. (SBU) Global Affairs officer delivered ref demarche to
German MFA UN Policy Division Desk Officer Mirko Schilbach
July 2. Schilbach thanked us for the identifying information
provided for the Iranian entities and individuals listed in
the Annexes of UNSCRs 1737 and 1747. He said he especially
appreciated the dates and places of birth of the listed
individuals because of the difficulty in tracing names in
Iran without such information. As Schilbach noted, the
commonness of certain surnames and fornames in Iran
complicates the German Government's ability to trace
individuals there, even when using variant spellings of the
names.

2. (SBU) Schilbach said he will pass the information to
appropriate German officials, including in the Federal
Intelligence Service (BND), for further review. He
identified the German Government's competencies in
implementing UNSCRs 1737 and 1747: The Ministry of Economics
and Technology has the lead in overseeing the implementation
of the sanctions; the Federal Banking Supervisory Office has
shut down the sanctioned activities of the Frankfurt branch
of Iran's Bank Sepah; the Deutsche Bundesbank is responsible
for freezing the assets of sanctioned entities and
individuals; and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs monitors the
travel ban on snctioned individuals or representatives of
sanctoned entities. Schilbach said he will pass to us ny
available German Government information identfying the
sanctioned Iranian entities and indiviuals.

3. (U) Post will report any additional Geran response septel.
