(SBU) The Iraqi Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) has indicated that
the GOI is willing to co-sponsor a resolution requesting UNSCR 1267
listing for the two individuals named in Ref A. Ambassador Mohammed
al-Humaimidi, our MFA contact on terrorist financing issues, said
the Prime Minister's Office agreed on November 24 to support a
co-resolution, and that the MFA would instruct the Iraqi Mission to
the United Nations to approach USUN on the issue and to submit a
request to list the two individuals "very soon." Al-Humaimidi also
said the MFA would be sending Embassy Baghdad a diplomatic note to
confirm the GOI's positive response to our demarche (Ref B and Ref
C). To our knowledge, this is the first time that the GOI has
co-sponsored a resolution on terrorist financing with us in a
multi-national forum.
