Ros-Lehtinen Applauds New Treasury Sanctions against Al-Qaeda Members Operating in Iran

Statement

By:
Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-FL), Chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, commented on the U.S. Treasury Department's announcement of the imposition of sanctions against six members of an al-Qaeda network operating in conjunction with the Iranian regime. Yesterday, Ros-Lehtinen spoke with Treasury's Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David S. Cohen about the designation. Statement by Ros-Lehtinen:

"I commend Under Secretary Cohen and his team at Treasury for dealing this blow to the al-Qaeda/ Iran network.

"Iran is the world's leading state sponsor of terrorism, but far from the only one. I encourage the Treasury Department to actively investigate and take tough action against financial institutions, such as ING which, according to news reports, may have violated U.S. sanctions on Iran and Cuba. All those who violate U.S. laws which bar business and other dealings with countries designated as State Sponsors of Terrorism must be held to account."
