UANI Calls for International Banking Blockade on Iran


New York, NY- On Friday, UANI called on President Obama and U.S. Congress to impose an international banking blockade on Iran, and sanction all Iranian financial institutions in order to stymie efforts by the Iranian regime to utilize non-sanctioned banks to circumvent efforts to sever Iran from the international financial system.


United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) CEO, Ambassador Mark D. Wallace, issued the following statement:


In the aftermath of the decision by SWIFT to discontinue its services to Iranian financial institutions subject to EU sanctions, President Obama and Congress should sanction all Iranian banks and take action to compel SWIFT to comply with U.S. law.


Iran should be cut off from the international banking system and all responsible countries and institutions must comply with the international banking blockade and U.S. law and cease transactions with Iranian banks.
