ITAR Amendment</P> <P align=right><FONT style="FONT-WEIGHT: normal; FONT-SIZE: 10pt; COLOR: #bbbbbb">Last Updated: May 15, 2007 </FONT></P> <P>The Department of State is amending the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (Section 126.1) regarding Somalia to bring the regulations in line with revisions to the arms embargo imposed by the UN Security Council (UNSC) in 1992. On February 20, 2007 the UNSC adopted resolution 1744 which amends the original 1992 embargo. The UNSC now permits the export to Somalia of weapons and military equipment, technical training, and assistance when intended solely for either of two purposes: 1) support for the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM), and 2) support for the purpose of helping develop security sector institutions in Somalia that further the objectives of peace, stability and reconciliation. Proposed exports for the latter purpose will require advance notification and the absence of a negative decision by the UNSC Somalia Sanctions Committee. </P> <P>The <I>Federal Register</I> notice on this matter will be available shortly.</P></DIV></TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE> <DIV></DIV><script type="text/javascript"> var gaJsHost = (("https:" == document.location.protocol) ?
