SUBJECT: PRE-NOTIFICATION OF REQUEST TO ADD AKAS TO 1267
COMMITTEE LIST

REF: STATE 59092

Classified By: Deputy Political Section Chief Ben Moeling. Reasons 1.4
(b) and (d).

1. (C) PolOff on June 6 delivered to MFA reftel points
notifying China of our planned June 17 submission to the 1217
Committee of a list of alternate names being used by Al
Rashid Trust and Al-Akhtar Trust to circumvent UNSCR 1267
sanctions. PolOff stressed that we hope for quick approval
of this list and asked that China not disclose the list until
action has been taken. MFA International Organizations and
Conferences Department UN Division Deputy Director Sun Xiaobo
said he sees "no problem in principle with the U.S. request."
He said the Chinese Government will study the list. Given
that China agreed to the designation of the original
organizations, there should be no problem in adding alternate
names, he added.
