COUNCIL COMMON POSITION 2008/652/CFSP

of 7 August 2008

amending Common Position 2007/140/CFSP concerning restrictive measures against Iran

THE COUNCIL OF THE EUROPEAN UNION,

Having regard to the Treaty on European Union, and in particular Article 15 thereof,

Whereas:

(1)

On 27 February 2007 the Council of the European Union adopted Common Position 2007/140/CFSP (1) which implemented United Nations Security Council Resolution 1737 (2006) (UNSCR 1737 (2006)).

(2)

On 23 April 2007 the Council adopted Common Position 2007/246/CFSP (2) which implemented United Nations Security Council Resolution 1747 (2007) (UNSCR 1747 (2007)).

(3)

On 3 March 2008 the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1803 (2008) (UNSCR 1803 (2008)) which widened the scope of the restrictive measures imposed by UNSCR 1737 (2006) and UNSCR 1747 (2007) and required all States to take the necessary measures to implement those provisions effectively.

(4)

On 23 June 2008 the Council adopted Common Position 2008/479/CFSP which identified additional persons and entities to be covered by the restrictions on admission and the freezing of funds.

(5)

UNSCR 1803 (2008) calls upon all States to exercise vigilance in entering into new commitments for public provided financial support for trade with Iran, in order to avoid such financial support contributing to proliferation sensitive nuclear activities or to the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems.

(6)

For the same reasons, UNSCR 1803 (2008) also calls upon all States to exercise vigilance over the activities of financial institutions in their territories with all banks domiciled in Iran, and their branches and subsidiaries abroad, in order to avoid such activities contributing to proliferation sensitive nuclear activities or to the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems. With a view to exercising such vigilance, certain provisions in this Common Position relate to Directive 2005/60/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 October 2005 on the prevention of the use of the financial system for the purpose of money laundering and terrorist financing (3).

(7)

UNSCR 1803 (2008) welcomes the guidance issued by the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) to assist States in implementing their financial obligations under UNSCR 1737 (2006).

(8)

UNSCR 1803 (2008) furthermore calls upon all States, in accordance with their national legal authorities and legislation and consistent with international law, to inspect the cargoes to and from Iran, of aircraft and vessels, at their airports and seaports, owned or operated by Iran Air Cargo and Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Line, provided there are reasonable grounds to believe that the aircraft or vessel is transporting prohibited goods.

(9)

UNSCR 1803 (2008) extends restrictive measures to additional persons and entities that are engaged in, directly associated with or providing support for Iran's proliferation sensitive nuclear activities or for the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems, or have been determined by the Security Council or the Sanctions Committee to have assisted designated persons and entities in evading sanctions of, or in violating the provisions of, UNSCR 1737 (2006), 1747 (2007) or 1803 (2008).

(10)

The necessary measures should also be taken to ensure that no compensation is granted to the Government of Iran, or to any person or entity in Iran, or to designated persons or entities, or to any person claiming through or for the benefit of any such person or entity, in connection with any contract or other transaction where its performance was prevented by reason of the measures decided on pursuant to UNSCR 1737 (2006), 1747 (2007) or 1803 (2008), including measures of the European Communities or any Member State in accordance with, as required by or in any connection with the implementation of the relevant decisions of the Security Council.

(11)

Furthermore, it is appropriate to prohibit the supply, sale or transfer to Iran of certain items, materials, equipment, goods and technology, in addition to those determined by the Security Council or the Sanctions Committee, that could contribute to Iran's enrichment-related, reprocessing or heavy water-related activities, to the development of nuclear weapon delivery systems or to the pursuit of activities related to other topics about which the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has expressed concerns or identified as outstanding.

(12)

Common Position 2007/140/CFSP should be amended accordingly.

(13)

Action by the Community is needed in order to implement certain measures,
