----------
BACKGROUND
----------
2. As part of security sector reform efforts in Somalia the
United States will provide a two-week Interdicting Terrorist
Activities Course for nineteen Somali Transitional Federal
Government participants. The Committee has already granted
an exemption to the arms embargo on Somalia established by
the Security Council in resolution 733 (1992) for this
training (ref A). In our exemption request we indicated the
course would be held in Nairobi, Kenya from 21 July through 1
August 2008 (ref B). Given logistical issues, the course
will now be held in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 13 - 24
October 2008. This cable requests USUN update the UNSC
Somalia Sanctions Committee and its Monitoring Group.

--------------
ACTION REQUEST
--------------
3. USUN is to advise the Committee established pursuant to
resolution 751 (1992) concerning Somalia that the date and
location of the two-week Interdicting Terrorist Activities
Course for nineteen Somali Transitional Federal Government
(TFG) participants has changed. The United States will now
hold this training in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from 13 - 24
October 2008.

4. USUN is also to inform the Monitoring Group related to the
Committee established pursuant to resolution 751 (1992)
concerning Somalia of the date and location change of the
course. USUN is also to provide the Somalia Monitoring Group
the participant list in para 5. The United States possesses
no credible information of gross human rights violations for
the nineteen candidates who have been nominated to attend the
Interdicting Terrorist Activities course.
