US sanctions network facilitating tech transfer to Iran

TEHRAN, Mar. 16 (MNA) – The US Treasury Department unveiled sanctions against a network of companies and individuals Friday for facilitating technology transfers from dozens of US firms to Iranian entities.

The sanctions relate to Informatics Services Corporation (ISC), the technology arm of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), the Treasury Department said in a statement.

It also sanctioned a number of alleged ISC subsidiaries and front companies based in Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, and three individuals allegedly linked to them including Pouria Mirdamadi, a French-Iranian dual national.

Brian Nelson, the US Treasury under secretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, claimed the CBI "has played a critical role" in providing financial support to Lebanon's Hezbollah and the foreign arm of Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, known as the Quds Force. 

The democratic government of the current US President Joe Biden, despite the slogan of diplomacy and tension reduction, continues to adopt the maximum pressure policies of the Republican government of Donald Trump.

Under various pretexts, including human rights and the wars in Ukraine and Israel, it has imposed anti-Iranian sanctions along with its western allies.
