UANI Applauds Toyota for Ending Sales to Iran 

New York, NY -  United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) applauds Toyota for its decision to end sales to Iran.

Toyota, on Wednesday, announced that it had suspended its exports to Iran, "in light of the current situation," according to a spokesperson. 
Responding to the decision, UANI President, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, said:

We applaud the decision by Toyota to halt its exports to Iran.  By halting sales to Iran, Toyota is sending a clear message to Iran that it will not do business with the Iranian regime until it stops developing illegal nuclear weapons.

UANI has been at the forefront of the campaign to pressure companies to end their business in Iran.  UANI maintains on its website the Iran Business Registry (IBR), a list of companies that have been reported to do business in Iran.  On January 12, 2010, UANI launched the "Iran Disclosure Project," an initiative to identify publicly-traded companies that have business dealings in Iran and ensure that such companies adequately inform investors of the legal and financial peril associated with such dealings.  Through the Iran Disclosure Project, UANI has targeted such companies as Royal Dutch Shell, Caterpillar, Ingersoll Rand, KPMG, and Honeywell to disclose the full extent of their business in Iran.
