Turkish business companies have entered into international contracts with foreign buyers for the sale of Iranian oil.
The US Treasury has imposed sanctions on a network of international companies led by Turkish businessman Setki Ayana. These companies, according to the American department, contributed to the hidden sale of Iranian oil, bypassing the international embargo. This was stated in the official statement of the Office for Foreign Assets Control of the US Treasury.
“Ayan’s companies entered into international contracts with foreign buyers for the sale of Iranian oil, organized oil shipments and helped launder the proceeds, hiding the Iranian origin of the products , as well as the fact that the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps – Qods Forces benefited from it. , “said the press. service.
The restrictions were imposed against the businessman himself, his accomplices, more than two dozen international companies, as well as a vessel flying the flag of Panama.
Ayan was found to have used his companies to facilitate transactions for the illegal sale of Iranian oil worth hundreds of millions of dollars. Instead of a seller, he did not indicate the Iranian regime, but front companies from his own network.
Recall that in July, Iran lowered oil prices to compete with Russia in China.
