Iran: Sanctions

Volume 492: debated on Tuesday 12 May 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs on how many occasions since 27 December 2006 the UN Sanctions Committee established pursuant to UN Security Council Resolution 1737 has exercised its mandate to designate additional (a) individuals, (b) equipment, (c) goods and (d) technology in relation to Iran's nuclear or ballistic missile programme; and if he will make a statement.

The UN Sanctions Committee established pursuant to UN Security Council Resolution 1737 has not added new designations under the original Resolution. However, the measures imposed by UN Security Council Resolution 1737 have since been strengthened by UN Security Council Resolutions 1747 (2007) and 1803 (2008), which expanded the lists of individuals, equipment, goods and technology subject to sanctions.
