SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the authorities vested in the

America, including the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1601 et seq.), the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2751 et seq.), 
and Section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and Executive Order 
12938 of November 14, 1994, as amended, the U.S. Government determined 
on December 21, 2012 that the following Chinese and Iranian foreign 
persons have engaged in proliferation activities that warrant the 
imposition of measures pursuant to sections 4(b), 4(c), and 4(d) of 
Executive Order 12938:
    Dalian Sunny Industries (China);
    Li Fangwei (China) [also known as: Karl Lee];
    Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics (MODAFL) (Iran);
    Shahid Bakeri Industrial Group (SBIG) (Iran); and
    Shahid Sattari Ground Equipment Industries (Iran).
    Accordingly, pursuant to the provisions of Executive Order 12938, 
as amended, the following measures are imposed on these entities, their 
subunits, and successors for two years:
    1. No departments or agencies of the United States Government shall 
procure or enter into any contract for the procurement of any goods, 
technology, or services from these persons including the termination of 
existing contracts;
    2. No departments or agencies of the United States government shall 
provide any assistance to these persons, and shall not obligate further 
funds for such purposes;
    3. The Secretary of the Treasury shall prohibit the importation 
into the United States of any goods, technology, or services produced

and agencies as provided in Executive Order 12938, as amended.
    In addition, pursuant to section 126.7(a)(1) of the International 
Traffic in Arms Regulations, it is deemed that suspending the above-
named persons from participating in any activities subject to Section 
38 of the Arms Export Control Act would be in furtherance of the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States. Therefore, 
for two years, the Department of State is hereby suspending all 
licenses and other approvals for: (a) Exports and other transfers of 
defense articles and defense services from the United States to the 
above-named persons; (b) transfers of U.S.-origin defense articles and 
defense services from foreign destinations to the above-named persons; 
and (c) temporary import of defense articles to or from the above-named 
persons.
    Moreover, it is the policy of the United States to deny licenses 
and other approvals for exports and temporary imports of defense 
articles and defense services destined for the above-named persons.
