United States-Chile Bilateral Tax Treaty Enters into Force

Furnished content.


A comprehensive bilateral tax treaty between the United States and Chile enters into force today. The Chile tax treaty is the first new comprehensive bilateral tax treaty signed by the United States to enter into force in more than ten years. The U.S. Senate provided advice and consent to ratification of the treaty on June 22, 2023, and President Biden signed the instrument of ratification in December. The treaty entered into force today when the United States notified Chile that it had completed the required procedures for bringing the treaty into force.  
The Chile tax treaty will reduce tax-related barriers to cross-border investment between the United States and Chile, facilitating stronger bilateral business ties.  Lower tax rates will allow entities doing business in both countries to save money. U.S. and Chilean companies and industry associations have long championed the passage of this tax treaty, which will make Chilean companies more competitive in the United States, and U.S. companies more competitive in Chile. The United States remains the number one market for Chilean women-led and small and medium-size businesses. This treaty will reduce the cost of business for them, as well.
The United States has 57 comprehensive tax treaties, covering more than 60 nations around the world. The U.S.-Chile bilateral tax treaty is only the second comprehensive income tax treaty in force with a South American country.

Imposing Sanctions onThoseSupporting Iran'sUnmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Production

Furnished content.


The United States is imposing sanctions today on a network of 10 entities and four individuals based in Iran, Malaysia, Hong Kong (PRC), and Indonesia, led by Iran-based Hossein Hatefi Ardakani, for facilitating Iran's procurement of sensitive goods, including U.S.-origin electronic components, for one-way attack UAVs produced by the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Aerospace Force Self Sufficiency Jihad Organization.    
The United States is committed to utilizing all available means to expose and disrupt Iran's growing UAV development and proliferation, which destabilizes the Middle East and could prolong Russia's unprovoked and unjustified war against Ukraine.  The United States will continue to work with allies and partners to hold individuals and entities accountable for supporting Iran's UAV programs.  Today's designations follow previous U.S. designations of individuals and entities linked to the production of Iran's Shahed-series UAV that the Russian military uses against Ukraine.  
Concurrent with OFAC's action and following a multi-year investigation by Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), the Department of Justice announced the unsealing of indictments charging Hossein Hatefi Ardakani and Gary Lam with crimes related to an illicit procurement network and scheme to unlawfully export U.S.-origin, dual-use, and sensitive technology to Iran.  HSI's global investigation identified a network of Iranian intermediary companies, front companies, and logistics businesses used to procure and facilitate the transfer of sensitive U.S.- and foreign-origin technology to Iran for its weapons programs.  On October 18, 2023, OFAC designated Gary Lam, whose primary name is Lin Jinghe, for his support to an Iran-based procurement agent working on behalf of the IRGC-owned Saberin Kish Company.
The Department of the Treasury's actions were takenpursuant to Executive Order 13382, which targets proliferators of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery, and their supporters. For more information on today's action, please see the Department of the Treasury'spress release.

Joint Statement on the U.S. - Austria Strategic Dialogue

Furnished content.


The text of the following statement was released by the Governments of the United States of America and the Republic of Austria on the occasion of the 2023 U.S. – Austria Strategic Dialogue.
Begin Text
The Governments of Austria and the United States held the annual U.S. – Austria Strategic Dialogue in Vienna on December 4, 2023.  The Strategic Dialogue was hosted by the Austrian Foreign Ministry's Political Director, Ambassador Gregor W. Kssler.  The United States was represented by Assistant Secretary for European and Eurasian Affairs, Ambassador James C. O'Brien.  The meeting also featured senior representatives from the Austrian Foreign Ministry and the U.S. Department of State. 
Topics discussed during the Strategic Dialogue included global and regional security issues; the importance of upholding the international rules-based order; Russia's war of aggression against Ukraine; issues concerning the Middle East and the PRC; defending and advancing human rights and democracy; the fight against racism, antisemitism, and anti-Muslim hatred; support for Holocaust survivors; disarmament and non-proliferation; and the Western Balkans.  In this regard, both sides fully supported the prospective EU accession of the Western Balkans countries. 
Austria and the United States expressed unwavering support for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, discussed the situation in the Middle East, and reaffirmed their joint commitment to and solidarity with Israel in light of the Hamas terror attacks on October 7.  They reiterated their concern about the deteriorating humanitarian situation in Gaza and the need for unhindered humanitarian access and the protection of civilians. 
The Strategic Dialogue in Vienna focused on shared interests and values and the commitment to increased cooperation on a broad range of issues, such as the State Partnership Program between Austria and Vermont, apprenticeships, foreign information manipulation and other forms of malign foreign influence, and enhanced people-to-people exchanges, including professional development and cultural exchanges.  The two sides noted economic relations between Austria and the United States continue to be strong, robust, and flourishing.  
As part of the Austria-U.S. Strategic Partnership, both sides emphasized the importance of transatlantic cooperation in addressing geopolitical issues and stressed the significance and contributions of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe to regional security. Austria, also in its capacity as a member of the European Union, and the United States are dedicated to strengthening their transatlantic relationship and reaffirmed their commitment to their shared values of promoting democracy and human rights. 
Both sides expressed a strong interest in continuing and deepening the bilateral strategic partnership.  The parties plan to hold the next meeting in Washington in 2024.
