UANI CEO Ambassador Mark D. Wallace said: “The overwhelming bipartisan support in Congress to extend the Iran Sanctions Act sends the strong message that doing business with Iran continues to be a risky investment.”
UANI is dedicated to exposing the risk that foreign companies make when they invest in Iran; most of the money will be funnelled the mullahs and used for terrorist activities.
Wallace continued: “The Iranian regime must be held accountable for its reckless behaviour, which has only worsened since the signing of the JCPOA agreement. We hope President Obama will sign this bill, ensuring that America has the necessary tools to combat the Iranian threat.”
President Obama has confirmed that he will sign the bill.
UANI Chairman and former U.S. Senator Joseph I. Lieberman, said: “Companies considering business in Iran should think twice. The Senate’s unanimous 10-year extension of the Iran Sanctions Act shows that Congress takes very seriously Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons, support for terrorism, and regional aggression. The incoming Trump Administration and the new Congress have much work they can do together to continue to hold Tehran accountable.”
