The White House indirectly paid $107 billion to companies defying its sanctions against Iran, the New York Times reported Sunday.

According to the report, records show that the US made contract payments and given grants and other benefits over the past decade to foreign and multinational American companies that were doing business in Iran.

The deals continue during the current administration but began already under the previous administration of George W. Bush.

The paper reported that some of the companies are embedded in critical aspects of the Iranian economy.
