Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee
House of Commons Oral Questions by Mr. Deepak Obhrai (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Foreign Affairs, CPC)

“Mr. Speaker, today our government announced new sanctions against the Iranian regime, including the listing of an additional 98 entities, ratcheting up the pressure on those who support Iran’s nuclear program, such as the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and the Basij paramilitary organization.

These measures align Canada’s sanctions with those adopted by our allies and partners. We will continue to work with them to address the urgent need to bring pressure to bear on the Iranian authorities.”
