Rubio Praises New U.S. Sanctions Against Financial Enablers of Iranian Regime’s Military Aggression and Terrorist Activities

Sep 20, 2019 | Press Releases

Miami, FL — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued a statement after the U.S. Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control, pursuant to Executive Order 13224, imposed new sanctions against the Central Bank of Iran, the sovereign wealth National Development Fund of Iran (NDF), and front company Etemad Tejarate Pars for providing financial support to the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC), the IRGC Qods Force (IRGC-QF), and Hizballah. The United States has designated the IRGC, IRGC Qods Force and Hizballah as Foreign Terrorist Organizations (FTOs), and also already imposed far-reaching secondary sanctions against the Central Bank of Iran.
“There should be no doubt that Iran is responsible for the attacks on Saudi oil facilities, and so it is critical for the United States continue to increase its maximum pressure campaign against the Iranian regime, including all financial enablers of its military aggression and terrorist activity,” Rubio said. “The regime in Tehran must know it will face swift, severe and lasting consequences if until it stops destabilizing the region, exporting terrorism on a global scale, and directing proxies to threaten American troops and interests.”
Rubio is a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence. He is also Majority Administrative Cochairman of the Senate National Security Working Group.
