Mahmoud Fadlallah Quoted by Bloomberg on Possible Terrorist Designation for Iran’s Revolutionary Guard
Akin Gump international trade partner Mahmoud Fadlallah has been quoted in the Bloomberg story “Why Trump Might Target Iran’s Revolutionary Guard: QuickTake Q&A,” which looks at the question of whether President Trump might list the Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution, popularly known as the “Revolutionary Guard,” as a terrorist organization. Doing so, the article reports, would have economic, political and geopolitical implications.
Regarding how such a terrorist designation might affect business with Iran, the article notes that companies would become more nervous than they already are about doing business there. Fadlallah said a terrorist label “ups the reputational concern for companies looking to deal with Iran.”
