UNITED STATES (VOP TODAY NEWS) — The United States warned on Friday that any entity or individual linked to an Iranian arms and research organization would be subject to US sanctions.

The US Treasury earlier imposed sanctions on 14 individuals and 17 entities linked to Iran’s Defense Innovation and Research Organization, which it said played a key role in Iran’s nuclear weapons efforts.

“Any individual who continues to be associated with the organization or these individuals risks exposure to international isolation at the professional, personal and financial levels,” a senior US administration official told a conference call.
