US DEPARTMENT OF TREASURY ANNOUNCED ENFORCEMENT OF SANCTIONS ON THAI-BASED AVIATION CO.




Mustafa AY – TDO – 15.09.2018 On Friday, US Department of Treasury announced enforcement of sanction on Thai-based aviation company -‘My Aviation Company Ltd’- on account of continuing provision of technical support to Iranian Mahan Airlines. Secretary Mnuchin made official statement relating to the sanction on Thai aviation company. In accordance with Mnuchin assertions, even though US officials repeatedly demanded both Thai government and the aviation company’s officials on cutting off all the business relations with Mahan Airlines, they insisted on proceeding with their business operations with Mahan Airlines. That’s why, US made this ‘reactional’ decision, said Mnuchin.

Washington administration accused Iranian Mahan Airline’s of yielding support to Iranian military operations in Syria. For this reason, Washington took immediate action against Mahan Airlines through deterrent sanctions on the company. To elaborate official accusations of Washington, Mahan Airlines allegedly provided assistance to Iranian government by transporting troops of Iranian regime forces and military equipment’s to Syria. That’s the only reason for imposition of sanction on the airlines company.
