Marsha Blackburn Sends Letter Warning International Business Community About Resuming Business with Iran

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Senator Marsha Blackburn (R—Tenn.), along with 14 Republican senators, sent a letter to the international business community warning them about resuming business with Iran if sanctions are lifted.

In part, the senators wrote, “Your member companies may see this potential removal of U.S. sanctions on Iran as a lucrative opportunity. Trust us, they should not. If U.S. sanctions on Iran were temporarily lifted and these firms decided to reenter the Iranian market, not only would they be engaging with a corrupt and capricious regime, they would be investing in ventures doomed to fail. These firms would also risk exposure to individuals and companies that are intertwined with the malign activities of the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism. So long as the Islamic Republic of Iran continues its outlaw behavior, we will support robust sanctions against the regime.”
