U.S. will continue to designate Iranian regime for its human rights violations, support for terrorism, the State Department said on Wednesday.
Marie Harf, Deputy Spokesperson for U.S. Department of State said: "We have been very clear publicly that we will continue to designate Iran for...its human rights violation, [and] support for terrorism.”
However she said the U.S. "did pre-notify" the Iranian regime "before we took these designations last week. But Under Secretary Sherman’s conversations have just been about the nuclear issue."
The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced on February 7 the designation of "a key Iran-based al-Qa’ida facilitator who supports al-Qaida’s vital facilitation network in Iran, that operates there with the knowledge of Iranian authorities."
