Today, the U.S. Department of the Treasury issued two general licenses designed to support longstanding U.S. Government efforts to encourage humanitarian and goodwill activities between the Iranian and American people. These two licenses, issued by the Treasury Department’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), authorize certain humanitarian related activities by nongovernmental organizations in Iran and athletic exchanges involving Iran and the United States. The licenses issued today authorize the provision of health services, disaster relief, wildlife conservation activities, human rights projects in Iran, activities related to sports matches and events, the sponsorship of sports players, coaching, refereeing, and training, in addition to other activities. This action further demonstrates this Administration’s commitment to reinforcing ties between the Iranian and American people.
