EU amends Iraqi sanctions: Specific restrictions on economic and financial relations with Iraq
The EU Foreign Ministers Council meeting here Thursday announced that it has amended regulation 1210/2003 concerning certain specific restrictions on economic and financial relations with Iraq.
This will permit the transfer of frozen funds to the successor arrangements to the Development Fund for Iraq put in place by the GOI under the conditions set out in UNSC resolutions 1483 (2003) and 1956 (2010),” said the short statement without giving any details.
The Council also extended the sanctions against persons responsible for the misappropriation of Tunisian state funds, including former Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali, by 12 months, i.e. until 1-31-2014.
