Country Footnotes

Armenia The UK interprets the OSCE arms embargo for Armenia as prohibiting the export of any military goods or technology to any person, or to any destination, in Armenia. It has been UK practice occasionally to make an exemption in its interpretation of the embargo by approving exports of non-lethal military goods to humanitarian, media or peacekeeping organisations, where it is clear that the embargo was not intended to prevent those exports and there is a strong humanitarian case for them.
Burma Restrictions currently in force with respect to Burma are set out in Council Decision 2013/184/CFSP; these include an embargo on the provision of arms and related material, as well as of equipment that might be used for internal repression as specified in Annex I to Council Regulation (EU) No 401/2013. All exports for this destination were approved in accordance with the sanctions in place.
Iran On 12 April 2011, the EU adopted additional sanctions on Iran in response to the deterioration of the human rights situation. Council Decision 2011/235/CFSP, as amended, includes restrictions on the supply of equipment which might be used for internal repression, as well as of monitoring and interception equipment. All exports for this destination were approved in accordance with the sanctions in place.
Iran The adoption of UN Security Council Resolution (UNSCR) 1929 on 9 June 2010 established a UN embargo on the supply of conventional weapons to Iran, in addition to restrictions introduced under the original UNSCR 1737 of 23 December 2006, which restricted any equipment that could contribute to the nuclear capability of Iran. EU Council Decision 2010/413/CFSP of 26 July 2010 (as amended) and EU Council Regulation 267/2012 (as amended) includes additional measures that, inter-alia, an embargo on imports of Iranian crude oil, natural gas, and petroleum products, trade in precious and raw metals, diamonds, Iranian banknotes and coinage to the Central Bank of Iran, naval equipment and technology for ship-building, and on certain software for integrating industrial processes. There is currently one exemption to the arms embargo, for the export of non-combat vehicles with ballistic protection intended solely for protective use of EU and Member States personnel. EU counter-proliferation sanctions currently in force are set out in Council Decision 2010/413/CFSP, as amended. This Decision embargoes the supply of arms and equipment that could contribute to the nuclear capability of Iran, nearly all Dual-Use equipment and equipment for certain sectors of the oil and natural gas industries. All exports for this destination were approved in accordance with the sanctions in place.
Syria On 31 May 2013, the EU adopted Council Decision 2013/255/CFSP, which lifted the embargoes on arms and related material, as well as on equipment which might be used for internal repression. This Decision also renewed, for a period of 12 months, the remaining measures set out in repealed Decision 2012/739/CFSP, which include embargoes on further equipment that might be used for internal repression (chemical warfare precursors and related equipment), monitoring and interception equipment, key equipment and technology for certain sectors of the oil and natural gas industry in Syria, luxury goods, and Syrian denominated banknotes and coinage. All exports for this destination were approved in accordance with the sanctions in place.
