On June 16, the U.S. Treasury Department sanctioned several Iranian petrochemical firms and China- and United Arab Emirates-based front companies. The sanctioned entities were connected to an Iranian state-owned enterprise and Triliance, a Hong Kong-based company which the United States had already blacklisted for its transactions with Iran. The Treasury Department also sanctioned Chinese national Jeff Gao and Indian national Mohammad Shaheed Ruknooddin Bhore, alleged brokers for Triliance.
