              (ii)  Use the alternate II clause in solicitations and contracts that do not include the clause at 252.225-7024, Requirement for Products or Services from Afghanistan, when the acquisition is of end products in support of operations in Afghanistan.
 

              (iii)  Do not use the basic or an alternate of the clause if—
