1. (U) Classified by Acting DCM Thomas E. Williams for
reasons 1.5 (b) and (d).


2. (U) This message contains an action request. Please
see paragraph 4.


3. (C) Post delivered 6/15 ref A talking points and
background paper to the UAE Ministry of Foreign Affairs,
and faxed a courtesy copy to Central Bank FIU Chief
Abdulrahim Al-Awadi. Post received 6/17 a diplomatic note
from the MFA requesting official copies in Arabic of all
designation lists, from ref B designation of "Batasuna And
The Basque Fatherland And Liberty" onward.


4. (C) Action request: As a matter of protocol, the
Central Bank in recent months has encouraged us to submit
terrorist financing designations directly to the MFA.
Consequently, it not unusual that the MFA would require an
official translation of the designation list, as the
majority of our written communication with the MFA is in
Arabic. Although Post has limited translation
capabilities, we will endeavor to provide a translation of
these demarches and plan to note to the MFA that Post's
transliterations of the names of designated individuals and
entities should not be viewed as authoritative. We will
defer to the MFA and the UAE Central Bank to determine the
alternate spelling of these names consistent with the
UAEG's computerized lists of bank accounts. Department
please advise. End action request.
