U.S. lawmakers to target Iran's bank
08-Aug-2011 (2 comments)

A letter, put together by U.S. Sens. Mark Kirk, R-Ill., and Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., said more economic action is needed against Iran.

"In our view, the United States should embark on a comprehensive strategy to pressure Iran's financial system by imposing sanctions on the Central Bank of Iran," a copy of the letter, part of which was published by The Wall Street Journal, stated. "If our allies are willing to join, we believe this step can be even more effective."

The letter is expected to arrive on Obama's desk Tuesday, the Journal notes. More than 90 senators signed the letter.
