U.S. wants to ‘close down the Central Bank of Iran’ over nuclear concerns

The latest round of American sanctions are aimed at shutting down Iran’s central bank, a senior U.S. official said Thursday, spelling out that intention directly for the first time.

Foreign central banks that deal with the Iranian central bank on oil transactions could also face similar restrictions under the new law, which has sparked fears of damage to U.S. ties with nations like Russia and China.

“If a correspondent bank of a U.S. bank wants to do business with us and they’re doing business with CBI or other designated Iranian banks… then they’re going to get in trouble with us,” the US official said.

TVNL Comment: Now we know the real reason we are going after Iran. And we see the real war mongers of the world for who they are...the bankers. As usual, banks and money are behind war.
