UBAE serves Bank Markazi, Iran’s central bank, which is sanctioned by the U.S. government for its involvement in the Iranian regime’s human rights violation, aggression, and illicit pursuit of nuclear weapons. (Tert, “Iran files lawsuit against US to recover 2bn assets,” 6/16/2016).
In January 2016, UBAE participated in a meeting with Iranian banks in which Iran Central Bank Governor Valiollah Seif announced Iran’s intentions to “revitalize ties between Iranian and European financial and credit institutions.” During Seif’s visit in Italy he “held meetings with officials from Italy’s Banca UBAE… [to] exchange views on correspondent banking relations and collaboration in relevant fields.” (Financial Tribune, “Italian Banks Get Ready for New Age,” 1/28/2016).
