Background

The State Department has determined that the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran and the head of AEOI, Ali Akbar Salehi, have engaged, or have attempted to engage, in activities or transactions that have materially contributed to, or pose a risk of materially contributing to, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction by Iran, through activities that are contrary to Iran’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action commitment that Iran will not engage in activities that could contribute to the development of a nuclear explosive device.

As a result of this action, all property and interests in property of AEOI and Ali Akbar Salehi that are in the U.S., or that hereafter come within the U.S. or that are or hereafter come within the possession or control of U.S. persons, are blocked and may not be transferred, paid, exported, withdrawn, or otherwise dealt in.
