MPs condemn US sanctions on Al-Mustafa Intl. University

TEHRAN, Dec. 27 (MNA) – More than 175 Iranian lawmakers in a statement on Sunday strongly condemned sanctions imposed by US Treasury Department on Al-Mustafa International University.

In this statement read by Rouhollah Motafaker Azad, a Member of Presiding Board of Parliament, it is emphasized, “Once again, opponents of transcendence of humanity revealed their true face and this time, adversaries to the Establishment targeted a great and prominent institution such as Al-Mustafa International University, one of the most prestigious international educational institutions, which is busy active in the field of disseminating science and spirituality in the world.”

This hostile action is undoubtedly a sign of helplessness and despair of US government in the face of scientific and cultural progress of the noble nation of Islamic Iran, the statement is read.

Lawmakers at Iranian Parliament condemn sanctions imposed by US Department of Treasury on the international scientific center which has put the motto of justice, spirituality and rationality at the forefront of its activities.

Iranian Parliament considers the ignorant boycott of this scientific center as "immoral and illegitimate" and contrary to all international norms and standards and strongly condemns it.

Members of the Parliament declare their firm and decisive support for this prestigious and prominent scientific institution.

The US Treasury Department announced in a statement on Tuesday that Al-Mustafa International University has been added to the list of individuals and entities under the sanctions of the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC).

Al-Mustafa International University is a religious and Islamic university established to expand and introduce Islamic and religious teachings in the world through modern facilities and technologies. It provides enthusiasts from all over the world with the opportunity of studying Islamic sciences and knowledge.
