GENEVA (AP) – A leaked U.S. diplomatic cable claims the Swiss government linked economic sanctions against Iran and the resettlement of Guantanamo detainees to the tax evasion case against UBS AG in the United States.

The July 1, 2009, cable obtained by WikiLeaks cites a senior U.S. diplomat in Bern saying the Swiss government would stop Swedish-owned company Colenco’s involvement with an Iranian research reactor.

According to the cable published by Norway’s Aftenposten paper, Swiss Vice President Doris Leuthard also raised the possibility of taking in freed Guantanamo detainees to show Switzerland’s commitment to resolving “all issues between our countries” including the UBS case.

Leuthard issued a statement Thursday denying any “direct link” between the two actions and the UBS case.
