SUBJECT: DPRK:  RUSSIAN VIEWS ON IMPLEMENTING UNSCR 1695 
 
REF: STATE 136495 
 
Classified By: Minister-Counselor for Political Affairs Alice Wells.  R 
easons: 1.4(B/D). 
 
1.  (C)  Russia will comply with the requirements of UNSCR 
Resolution 1695 but is unlikely to adopt additional legal 
requirements directed against the DPRK's missile or WMD 
programs.  MFA Korea Section Chief Aleksandr Vostrikov told 
us August 23 that responsibility for implementing the 
resolution's requirements would be shared among Foreign 
Ministry departments and other law enforcement and financial 
agencies.  Russia was committed to implementing the 
resolution, but was unwilling to consider UN Security Council 
sanctions against the DPRK because they would destroy any 
hope of achieving a negotiated solution through Six Party 
talks. 
 
2.  (C)  Vostrikov noted that Russia had a strong record of 
bilateral cooperation with the U.S. in countering terrorism 
finance and financial crimes and was involved in multilateral 
fora aimed at stemming criminal financial activity.  He said 
that Moscow would be responsive to allegations that Russian 
entities were being used to transfer financial resources to 
the DPRK's missile or WMD programs, noting that following 
U.S. warnings last year, Russian banks had been cautioned 
about entering into new relationships with North Korea.  He 
observed that Russia had also taken steps over the last 
several years to tighten its export controls.  He said he was 
unaware of any special action or new legislation or 
regulations that would be needed to implement UNSCR 1695 
requirements. 
 
3.  (C)  Peter Ilyechev of the MFA International 
Organizations Department's UN Political Affairs Office told 
us on August 24 that the reftel proposals for stopping land, 
air and maritime proliferation can be addressed through 
existing nonproliferation regimes, such as the Proliferation 
Security Initiative and the Missile Technology Control 
Regime.  Ilyechev also said that DPRK entities which could 
face financial measures should be listed by the UNSC. 
 
4.  (C)  We provided reftel points August 25 to the MFA 
Department for Disarmament and Security Affairs (DVBR) Export 
Control Policy Section.  The Section promised to review the 
information.
