Dr. Thomas Zarzecki, Director of the State Department’s Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation’s Task Force 231, met with officials from the Serbian government on November 8 as part of consultations that he conducts with U.S. partner and allied governments around the world regarding the implementation of Section 231 of the Countering America’s Adversaries Through Sanctions Act (CAATSA).
