Switzerland, Turkey: U.S. Official To Visit, Discuss Iran Sanctions

U.S. Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence David Cohen will visit Switzerland and Turkey starting Sept. 1 to discuss the expanded sanctions against the Iranian Central Bank and Iran's petrochemical and petroleum sector, Xinhua reported Aug. 31. The sanctions are part of an international effort to pressure Tehran into returning to negotiations on uranium enrichment and, more generally, to contain Iran's growing regional ambitions. Cohen also plans to discuss sanctions on Syria meant to remove Syrian President Bashar al Assad from power and end the Syrian conflict, according to the U.S. Treasury Department.
