E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: ETTC PREL ENRG EPET IR CH
SUBJECT: IRAN SANCTIONS ACT (ISA, FORMERLY ILSA):
DELIVERING STRONG USG MESSAGE ABOUT AGREEMENT BY SINOPEC
ON YADAVARAN PROJECT

REF: STATE 165844

(SBU) Reftel instructed Embassy Beijing to raise US concerns
about the reported agreement by the Chinese firm Sinopec to
develop the Yadavaran oilfield in Iran. Info addressees on
that message included some posts where issues relating to
investment in Iran have also arisen. Relevant posts may, at
their discretion, advise host-country officials that we are
deeply concerned about the Yadavaran deal and are raising
those concerns in Beijing, and that the USG continues
strongly to oppose investment in Iran,s oil and gas sector,
which can undermine efforts to pressure Iran to comply with
UNSC resolutions and raise issues under the Iran Sanctions
Act (ISA).
