Designating Persons Tied to Network Smuggling U.S. Technology toCentralBank of Iran

Furnished content.


Matthew Miller, Department Spokesperson

The United States is today designating four entities and three individuals tied to a network facilitating the illegal export of U.S. goods and technology to end users in Iran, including the Central Bank of Iran.  The Central Bank of Iran has played a critical role in providing financial and technological support to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Qods Force and Hizballah, both foreign terrorist organizations and key drivers of the ongoing conflict in the Middle East.
Today's action demonstrates that defying export restrictions and circumventing sanctions against Iran will result in consequences.  The United States is steadfast in its commitment to countering terrorist financing and will continue to use all available means to disrupt the illegal procurement of sensitive technology by the Iranian regime.
The Department of the Treasury designations were taken pursuant to Executive Order 13224, as amended. For more information on today's action, see Treasury's press release.

The Minerals Security Partnership Announces Collaboration in Minerals Exploration, Production, and Processing Between GECAMINES in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and JOGMEC in Japan

Furnished content.


Office of the Spokesperson

The United States, as Chair of the Minerals Security Partnership (MSP), and MSP partners, announces the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between LA GENERALE DES CARRIERES ET DES MINES (GECAMINES) and the Japan Organization for Metals and Energy Security (JOGMEC). This milestone collaboration, forged through dialogue among MSP partners, creates a framework for coordination in mineral exploration, production, and processing in alignment with our shared commitment to the Partnership for Global Infrastructure and Investment (PGI)'s development of the Lobito Corridor. The MOU will create a framework for cooperation in the areas of mining and mineral resources with the intention of expanding of business opportunities for the parties.
This coordination among MSP partners is a powerful demonstration of the MSP's efforts to secure and diversify critical mineral supply chains, which bring economic benefits to local communities and source countries such as the DRC. In addition, GECAMINES will be a key player in the Lobito Corridor project thanks to its large portfolio of joint-venture projects in production, representing over 1.5 million tons of copper cathodes and 100,000 tons of cobalt hydroxide and more to be commissioned from projects under construction.
