The US and its UE counterparts must keep close eye on Iran, if they to prevent the country from developing nuclear weapons. Government operatives in Iran are very much determined to build nuclear weapons even though tough sanctions have greatly limited their plan. Since the time their nuclear weapons program was discovered in the year 2002, Iran has continually used all tricks and tactics to advance its agenda to become a nuclear power. Iran nuclear ambitions are led by top politicians and government officials who are determined to attain their aim one day. The sanctions imposed by the US on Iran economy have yielded some fruits but Tehran operatives continue to push on with their plans.
For instance, sanctions imposed by America and EU have badly damaged the Iranian economy. The Iranian government is hell bent on developing nuclaier weapons even though there are numerous protests in the country. Operatives in Tehran are uncovering methods to by-pass the sanctions put in place the the US and EU. Tehran operatives are determined to develop nuclear weapons, so the US and EU government must act to stop the threat first. This article highlights the ways the Iranian operatives are employing to circumvent the sanctions imposed by the US.
Investing in foreign companies
The government operatives in Tehran are buying out firms in foreign nations with the aim of advancing their nuclear program. For example, the Iranian government is investing loads of money into proxy companies located outside Iran, specifically In Germany and Italy. A clear suspicious activity going on involves Iranian operatives buying firms dealing with industrial gas.
For example, operatives in Tehran using proxy firms have successfully managed to buy out a number of companies dealing with gas products in the city of Frankfurt, Germany. Once The US was alerted about these activities, several companies were shut down but the tricks persist. A majority of firms acquired by proxy companies representing the Iranian government haven’t made profits hence some have been forced to shut. The aim of the Iranian government is to buy industrial plants using proxy firms so as to acquire the needed technology to build nuclear weapons.
Procuring materials through proxy companies’ located abroad
The other avenue the Iranian government is using to bypass nuclear sanctions imposed by the US and other nations is to procure materials and equipment using proxy companies located in other countries. For instance, investigations have reveled a connection between Tehran and some companies procuring industrial materials and equipment, which are based in Dubai. Even though the European union and the American government are alert, Iran is finding all manner of loopholes to procure materials and continue their nuclear enrichment program.
