Kerry: Businesses using US sanctions as excuse to avoid Iran


LONDON - US Secretary of State John Kerry said Tuesday businesses shouldn't use the US and its sanctions against Iran as an excuse not to do business there.


Speaking to American journalists while in London, Kerry said companies are using the US as an excuse when they have other reasons to avoid the Islamic Republic.


He said the US is telling European banks and others that with the nuclear deal in place, Iran is open for business, with the exception of specific entities that are still sanctioned, including Iran's Revolutionary Guard, adding that banks can open accounts for Iran, lend money and facilitate legitimate transactions.
