(AhlulBayt News Agency) - Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Discernment Council says that there is a special intelligence unit in the US Department of Treasury tasked with targeting Iran’s economy.
Secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council Mohsen Rezaei said that the ‘Countering America's Adversaries Through Sanctions Act’ (CATSA), which is targeted at Iran, Russia, and North Korea was compiled and written by this special organization in US Treasury. This special unit which is called ‘TFI’ has established several offices in US embassies in Iran’s neighboring countries including Pakistan, Afghanistan, and the UAE tasked with monitoring Iran’s financial and economic activities, according to Rezaei, who was speaking in a seminar on the ‘Dimensions of the Economic War against Iran’ at Imam Hossein comprehensive University in Tehran.'
According to Rezaei, “this special organization is chaired by the US Under Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence Stuart A. Levey, who is a Zionist.”
“Levey traveled between different capitals and met more than 100 CEOs and warned them not to do any business with Iran. That’s why no major bank has resumed financial trade with Iran after the implementation of the JCOPA and only some small banks resumed financial transactions with Iranian banks,” assserted the secretary of Iran’s Expediency Council.
Later in his speech, he pointed out the importance of revealing these threats and the dimensions of this secret and open economic war to the Iranian diplomats saying “the so-called Resistance Economy has provided ways to protect us against these threats and there are ways predicted in it to counter these all-out economic war.”
