NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--As Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif kicks off his European tour in Poland on May 30 at the Polish-Iranian Economic Forum, former Polish Foreign Minister and United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) Advisory Board Member Radosław Sikorski today warned foreign companies tempted to do business with the Ayatollah about the looming risks involved:
“Polish leaders have ramped up their efforts in recent months to crack down on terrorism. And yet, they are actively pursuing business in a country where business and terrorism are intertwined.
“Iranian leaders empower the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps — a sanctioned terrorist group — to wield enormous clout and oversee billions of dollars in deals.
“The Guard’s complex web of front companies threatens to entangle and endanger any company that pursues business with Iran. The risks are just too grave.”
Led by a group of former leading diplomats and lawmakers, UANI is in the midst of a global education campaign focused on the corporate risks of doing business with Iran, warning hundreds of international companies that are contemplating Tehran as a new investment opportunity.
