(S) EmbOff met March 10 with Kees Jan Steenhoek, Senior Policy Advisor, Ministry of Economic Affairs, to discuss reftel points. Steenhoek is responsible for the GONL's export control process. He appreciated the information as he said the GONL had not been aware of AMT Netherlands' exports to Iran. Steenhoek said the GONL would most likely use a catch-all procedure under the Missile Technology Control Regime that will require AMT Netherlands to obtain a license for all exports of UAV engines to Iran. Steenhoek said he did not suspect AMT Netherlands was aware of the possible connection between its customer (Parilla Company) and Iran's UAV program, in which case he predicted the company would likely back away from this commercial relationship. Steenhoek said he would also share reftel points with the Dutch Intelligence and Security Services (AIVD) as well as generic lookout information with the Dutch Customs Administration. GALLAGHER
