The Secretary of State on Thursday imposed sanctions on four Iranian nuclear support companies and one individual as Weapons of Mass Destruction Proliferators and their Supporters pursuant to Executive Order (E.O.) 13382, declared US Spokesperson Patrick Ventrell in the press statement on the official website of US Department of State.
These entities and individual were designated because they provide the Iranian government goods, technology, and services that increase Iran's ability to enrich uranium and/or construct a heavy water moderated research reactor, both of which are activities prohibited by UN Security Council Resolutions, noted Ventrell.
According to his words, these designations generally prohibit transactions between the named entities and any U.S. person, and freeze any assets the designees may have under U.S. jurisdiction.
Foreign financial institutions that facilitate significant transactions to or from the sanctioned entities and individual are exposed to potential loss of access to the U.S. financial sector.
The Individuals and Entities Designated Today by the Department of State Pursuant to E.O. 13382 include: Aluminat (Aluminat Production and Industrial Company), Pars Amayesh Sanaat Kish, Parviz Khaki, Pishro Systems Research Company and Taghtiran Kashan Company.Last Mod: 10 Mayıs 2013, 12:39
