U.S. Blacklists Two Iranian Foundations
WASHINGTON (Dispatches) -- The United States on Wednesday blacklisted two Iranian foundations and their subsidies.
The designations announced by the U.S. Treasury Department target Execution of Imam Khomeini’s Order (EIKO) and Astan Quds Razavi (AQR), their heads and subsidies. They are the latest action to reinforce the "maximum pressure” campaign on Iran pursued by President Donald Trump’s administration. U.S. President Donald Trump is due to hand over power to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden after losing the Nov. 3 election.
