We are talking about firms that are based in Oman, Liberia, and Romania.
The U.S. authorities are imposing sanctions on an Omani businessman and four companies associated with him because they allegedly participated in oil trading in the interests of the Special Forces “Al-Quds” of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC, elite units of the Iranian Armed Forces). This is stated in a statement of the State Department, published on Friday.
As follows from the document, we are talking about firms that are based in Oman, Liberia, and Romania. They were allegedly part of an “international oil smuggling network that supports the Al-Quds of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.”
