TAGS: EFIN ETTC PTER LY UNSC
SUBJECT: UN 1267: USG HOLDS ON LIBYAN TERRORIST SANCTION REQUESTS

REF: STATE 97379

1. We are still trying to arrange a face-to-face discussion on
Libya's outstanding UNSCR 1267 nominations (reftel) with the
MFA's International Organizations Affairs office. The
combination of Ramadan hours and the absence in New York of the
leadership of that office has so far frustrated our efforts. On
September 17, we sent a diplomatic note transmitting the
essential points concerning our desire to work with the Libyans
to resolve the issues surrounding the libyan nominations for the
1267 list.

2. We will continue to seek a meeting with the relevant Libyan
officials, but do not think it will occur until after the Id
al-Fitr ends here on October 3.
