On 21 March 2016, the Security Council Committee established pursuant to resolution 1718 (2006) decided that the following four vessels, specified in Annex III of resolution 2270 (2016) pursuant to paragraph 23 of the same resolution, are not economic resources controlled or operated by Ocean Maritime Management and therefore not subject to the asset freeze imposed in paragraph 8 (d) of resolution 1718 (2006):

JIN Tal (IMO no. 9163154)

The Committee notes that new measures have been taken to establish confidence that these vessels are not operated or controlled by Ocean Maritime Management.  In light of these measures, the Committee has therefore decided to remove these vessels from the list of those operated or controlled by Ocean Maritime Management.  The Committee will continue to review available information and keep this list updated.
