REF: A. STATE 88759
B. SAN JOSE 674

1. (SBU) On August 19, we delivered Ref A demarche to Carlos
Cordero at the MFA's Department of Disarmament, Terrorism and
Organized Crime. Cordero promised to follow the usual Costa
Rican procedures of alerting Costa Rican intelligence and
financial oversight agencies; however, since this is a
national designation and not a UN designation, the GOCR's
ability to act is more limited (Ref B). He did appreciate,
however, that the U.S. designations were aimed at fulfilling
our obligations under UNSCRs 1747 and 1803.
