Group slams Europe-Iran economic confab in Zurich

May 5, 2016 05:36

The United Against Nuclear Iran organization on Wednesday slammed a two-day Europe-Iran forum currently taking place in Zurich for promoting business to the Islamic Republic while ignoring the county’s support for terrorism and its belligerent behavior.

UANI CEO Mark Wallace and its chairman, former US senator Joe Lieberman, issued a statement saying that it was “alarming” to see the event “blindly promoting business opportunities and investments in Iran without any acknowledgment of the severe risks or discussion of Iran’s troubling and belligerent behavior.”

Iran, the statement said, “remains, the world’s leading state sponsor of terrorism.

From ballistic missile tests and shows of force, to political and financial support of terrorist regimes around the world, Iran has made it clear to the world that the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal] has yielded no real change or transformation in Tehran.”
