Sanctions imposed on 18 major Iranian banks assisting Tehran in financing terrorism and developing nuclear weapons
The United States on Thursday announced sanctions against 18 major Iranian banks. This is stated in a statement by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, which was published by the State Department..
New sanctions aim to deprive Tehran of funds to support terrorist organizations and develop nuclear weapons. “Our campaign of maximum economic pressure will continue until Iran enters into comprehensive negotiations aimed at countering the regime’s malicious behavior,” said Mike Pompeo.
Secretary of State recalled that in 2018 and 2019, Ayatollah Khamenei transferred $ 4 billion from the Iranian National Development Fund to spending military. While the Iranian Ministry of Health requested resources to protect the Iranian people from the coronavirus outbreak, “Khamenei instead increased funding for the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, recognized (in the US) as a foreign terrorist organization, by a third, and doubled funding for the Basij group. which terrorizes the Iranian people every single day “.
US sanctions “target the regime and its corrupt officials who have used the wealth of the Iranian people to fuel radical … groups that are causing untold suffering in the Middle East and beyond. The United States continues to support the Iranian people who suffer the most from the regime’s predatory behavior, ”said Mike Pompeo.
