London, Jun. 09 – The United States imposed sanctions on four Iranian firms on Friday for their role in Iran’s proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the U.S. Treasury said in a statement.

“The U.S. Department of the Treasury today designated four Iranian companies, Pars Tarash (a/k/a Pars Trash Company), Farayand Technique, Fajr Industries Group, and Mizan Machine Manufacturing Group, for their role in Iran’s proliferation of weapons of mass destruction”, the statement said.

“So long as Iran continues to pursue a nuclear program in defiance of the international community’s calls to halt enrichment, we will continue to hold those responsible to account for their conduct”, said Stuart Levey, Under Secretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (TFI).

“Pars Tarash and Farayand Technique are owned or controlled by, or act or purport to act for or on behalf of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) and/or the Kalaye Electric Company, an AEOI subsidiary designated by OFAC on February 16, 2007”, the U.S. Treasury said.

“Also designated today are Fajr Industries Group and Mizan Machine Manufacturing Group, two entities owned or controlled by, or acting or purporting to act for or on behalf of Iran’s Aerospace Industries Organization (AIO). The AIO … is a subsidiary of the Iranian Ministry of Defense and Armed Forces Logistics, and is the overall manager and coordinator of Iran’s missile program”, it said.
