U.S. Trea­sury wag­ing se­cret fullscale war against Tehran: Rezaee

Tehran Times - - FRONT PAGE -

TEHRAN — Mohsen Rezaee, the sec­re­tary of Iran’s Ex­pe­di­ency Coun­cil, said on Mon­day that there is a special in­tel­li­gence of­fice in the U.S. Trea­sury Depart­ment tasked with tar­get­ing Iran’s econ­omy.

Rezaee said the Coun­ter­ing Amer­ica’s Ad­ver­saries Through Sanc­tions Act (CAATSA), which is tar­geted at Iran, Rus­sia, and North Korea, was com­piled and writ­ten by this special of­fice in the Trea­sury.

“This special unit which is called TFI has es­tab­lished sev­eral of­fices in Amer­i­can em­bassies in Iran’s neigh­bor­ing coun­tries in­clud­ing Pak­istan, Afghanistan, and the UAE tasked with mon­i­tor­ing Iran’s fi­nan­cial and eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties,” Rezaee told a sem­i­nar on the Di­men­sions of the Eco­nomic War against Iran at Imam Hos­sein Uni­ver­sity in Tehran.

Ac­cord­ing to Rezaei, this special or­ga­ni­za­tion is chaired by the U.S. Un­der Sec­re­tary of the Trea­sury for Ter­ror­ism and Fi­nan­cial In­tel­li­gence Stu­art A. Levey, “who is a Zion­ist”. “Levey trav­eled be­tween dif­fer­ent cap­i­tals and met more than 100 chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cers and warned them not to do any busi­ness with Iran. That’s why no ma­jor bank has re­sumed fi­nan­cial trade with Iran af­ter the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the JCOPA and only some small banks re­sumed fi­nan­cial trans­ac­tions with Ira­nian banks,” ex­plained Rezaee, a former IRGC chief and trained eco­nomic ex­pert.

Point­ing to the im­por­tance of re­veal­ing th­ese threats and the di­men­sions of this se­cret and open eco­nomic war, Rezaee said, “The so-called re­sis­tance econ­omy has pro­vided ways to pro­tect us against th­ese threats and there are ways pre­dicted in it to counter th­ese all-out eco­nomic war.”
