(SBU) On October 29 Econoff met with First Secretary Sang

to deliver demarche on U.S. designation of the Export
Development Bank of Iran (EDBI) and three of its affiliates
under E.O. 13382 (reftel). Lee responded that he would
notify relevant authorities in the Ministry of Strategy and

Econoff if any action was taken with respect to the
