British aid mocks sanctions threat against Iran (embarassing)
http://www.iranfocus.com/modules/news/article.php?story...

THE government faces a diplomatic row with America over disclosures that it has provided the Iranian regime with financial support worth about 290m while at the same time calling for sanctions.

The money was offered by the Export Credits Guarantee Department (ECGD) to support British firms exporting to Iran, mainly to the countrys petrochemical industry.

Many of the loans were being negotiated while British ministers were threatening sanctions against Iran for creating a nuclear enrichment facility to make atomic weapons.

Last week Gordon Brown called for new sanctions against Iran in addition to those already imposed by the United Nations security council. The prime minister wants a ban on investment in the oil and gas industries if Iran does not agree to end the production of enriched uranium.

This weekend government sources signalled their embarrassment over the ECGDs activities. There is clearly a gap between our actions and our rhetoric, said one Whitehall insider.
