Are you targeting Chinese companies and individuals again?

According to Reuters news, on the 3rd local time, the United States announced sanctions on 11 foreign companies and three individuals, accusing them of violating U.S. sanctions against Iran and helping Iran export oil, petroleum products and petrochemical products, including six Chinese companies ( 5 are Hong Kong registered companies, 1 is a mainland company) and 2 Chinese individuals.

According to a statement released by the U.S. Treasury Department, the U.S. Treasury Department has added six companies from Iran, the United Arab Emirates and China to the list of sanctioned entities on the grounds that these companies provide transportation and sales channels for Iranian petrochemical products and Sanctioned Triliance Petrochemical Co. Ltd (headquartered in Hong Kong) provided support.

On the same day, the U.S. State Department also imposed sanctions on five companies and three individuals from Iran, the United Arab Emirates and China involved in transactions related to Iran’s oil and petrochemical industries. In a statement, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said: “Our actions today reaffirm the United States’ commitment to refrain from financing the Iranian regime that enables them to fuel terrorism and other destabilizing activities.”

According to the sanctioned entities and personal information released by the U.S. Treasury Department, the list includes five companies registered in Hong Kong, China, one company headquartered in Shanghai, and two Chinese individuals.

The move by the Trump administration will freeze all U.S. assets of entities and individuals blacklisted by sanctions, while barring Americans from doing business with them, Reuters said.

The United States has repeatedly attacked Chinese companies on the grounds of its ties to Iran. In May, the U.S. announced sanctions on a logistics company in Shanghai, China, for allegedly working with Iran’s Mahan Air, which has been blacklisted by the U.S. In this regard, Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian emphasized at the regular press conference of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that China urges the United States to immediately lift relevant illegal sanctions and will be firmly committed to safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of domestic enterprises.

Zhao Lijian said that China has always opposed the US unilateral sanctions and so-called long-arm jurisdiction. For a long time, all parties in the international community have carried out friendly cooperation with Iran within the framework of international law, which is reasonable and legal, and should be respected and protected. China urges the US to immediately lift the relevant illegal sanctions, and will be firmly committed to safeguarding the legitimate rights and interests of domestic companies.

Zhao Lijian emphasized that at the critical moment when the international community is jointly fighting against the new crown pneumonia epidemic, the United States is still practicing unilateralism and so-called extreme pressure, which runs counter to the international community’s efforts to fight the epidemic in solidarity and seriously violates the spirit of humanitarianism. China urges the US to immediately change course and correct its wrongdoing.
