United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) President David Ibsen released the following statement today regarding Denmark’s decision to push for European Union-wide sanctions against Iran following the regime’s foiled assassination attempt within the country:
“Iran is led by a dangerous regime that has shown no aversion to committing acts of terror on European soil. This is the second government-run attempt to commit murder in an EU-member state since June. We applaud the Danish government in their call for fresh EU-wide sanctions against Iran. UANI also calls upon the leadership of Copenhagen-based Danske Bank to commit itself to using its seat on the board of directors of the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) to force the immediate disconnection of Iran from its system.
“EU-member states are being targeted by Iran. The Financial Action Task Force (FATF), of which Denmark is a member, has recently found that Iran poses a risk to the international financial system for its lack of protections against money laundering and terror financing. Danske Bank should seize this moment and use its position with SWIFT to strike a blow against the regime’s ability to finance the kinds of plots that have recently been foiled.”
