U.S. Officials: Iran Is Not Open for Business


iranU.S. Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman and David Cohen, undersecretary for terrorism and financing, acknowledged that European businesses are rushing to Iran to prepare for the possibility that all sanctions will be lifted if a comprehensive agreement is reached preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.

But they told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee Tuesday that the U.S. will continue to enforce existing sanctions and that those who violate them will be targeted.

“As part of this effort, over the last six weeks I have traveled to the UK, Germany, Italy, Austria, Turkey and the UAE carrying this message: ‘Iran is not open for business,'” Cohen told skeptical lawmakers.
