Secretary of State John Kerry said Thursday that he is sure that some of the $55 billion of sanctions relief that Iran has received will end up in the hands of terrorists.
In an interview from Davos, Italy, from the World Economic Forum on CNBC’s “Squawk Box,” Kerry was asked if he believed if any of the $55 billion of sanctions relief could end up in the hands of terrorists.
“I think that some of it will end up in the hands of the IRGC [Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps] or of other entities, some of which are labeled terrorists,” Kerry replied.
“You know, to some degree, I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that could be prevented, but I can tell you this, right now, we are not seeing the early delivery of funds going to that kind of endeavor at this point in time,” he continued. “I’m sure at some point some of it will.”
