Iran intelligence agency could face sanctions from US over suspected terror ties

Washington, Fri, 17 Feb 2012 ANI

Washington, Feb 17(ANI): The United States could impose sanctions on Iran's ministry of intelligence and security, claiming that it supports global terrorism, commits human rights abuses against Iranians and is a part of the ongoing repression in Syria.


The ministry has been added to the US's list of specially selected global terrorists, the Treasury Department said on Thursday.


Any assets of the group, which comes under the US jurisdiction, would be freezed and it also prohibits Americans from doing business with the group.


The sanction also bans ministry employees from travel to the United States, The Fox News reports.


The consequence of the sanctions will be largely symbolic, as the group is not known to have holdings in the U.S.


The announcement said the ministry had helped Al Qaeda agents in Iran and provided them with identity cards and passports and had given money and weapons to Al Qaeda in Iraq. (ANI)
