Iran Creates Blacklist of “Zionist Firms”

(October 2006)

Iran published a blacklist barring trade with international companies that are “affiliated to the Zionist regime and Israeli stockholders.” Foreign Minister Manoucher Mottaki said it was a “responsibility and duty” to strengthen an international Islamic embargo against Israel. He added that Iranian law “bans economic relations with any company, institution or firm affiliated with the Zionist regime anywhere in the world.”
