Mentioned Suspect Entities & Suppliers: 


4. The Committee twice reached out to Iran last year in relation to incidents investigated by the Panel of Experts: we wrote on 12 April 2013 in relation to the Panel's unanimous conclusion that Iran's launches of the Shahab 1 and 3 missiles during the Great Prophet 7 exercises contravened paragraph 9 of resolution 1929 (2010); and on 21 May 2013 in relation to the Panel's conclusion that an intercepted arms shipment in Yemen was at the very least a probable violation by Iran of paragraph 5 of resolution 1747 (2007). Iran still has not replied, and the Committee continues to call on Iran to do so.

5. Although the Committee remains mindful of ongoing talks between the P5+1 and Iran following the Joint Plan of Action agreed in Geneva on 24 November 2013, the work of both the Committee and the Panel of Experts remains unchanged for 2014. As I mentioned during my last report in December 2013, the Security Council measures imposed by resolutions 1737, 1747, 1803, and 1929 remain in effect; and Member States continue to have an obligation to implement them duly.
