USA/IRAN – US blacklists four companies for helping export of Iranian petrochemical products (Al Arabiya)

The United States on Wednesday imposed sanctions on companies, accusing them of supporting the sale of Iranian petrochemicals as Washington increases pressure on Tehran even as President Donald Trump’s term nears a close.

The US Treasury Department in a statement said it blacklisted the four entities for facilitating the export of Iranian petrochemical products by Triliance Petrochemical Co. Ltd., which was hit with sanctions by Washington earlier this year.
