The United States has sanctioned several companies for allegedly allowing the shipment and sale of Iranian petrochemicals.
Six companies headquartered in Iran, China and the United Arab Emirates were sanctioned for supporting Triliance Petrochemical Co., Ltd., a Hong Kong-based dealer with operations in Iran, China, the UAE and Germany, the Treasury Department announced Thursday.
The U.S. blacklisted Triliance Petrochemical in January.
The companies sanctioned by Treasury were Iran-based Zagros Petrochemical, Hong Kong-based Dinrin, Dynapex Energy and Jingho Technology, and UAE-based Petrotech FZE and Trio Energy DMCC.
