WEST LOS ANGELES, Calif., Jan. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --The West Los Angeles Chamber of commerce shall refuse to condone or participate in any business with countries on the State Department's list of sponsors of terrorism, including the Islamic Republic of Iran (IRI), as well as companies doing business with the IRI and the others on that list.

The Islamic Republic of Iran, responsible for killing hundreds of Americans in Iraq, Lebanon and other regions since its inception, in addition to assassinating Iranian refugees and asylum seekers abroad, is still continuing its anti-American activities, including by direct action such as the humiliating naval conflict and hostage taking of US forces in the Persian Gulf and through its proxy forces in Iraq, who kidnapped an additional three Americans last week.

Following similar statements by the Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer as well as the California State Senator Joel Anderson, the West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce also confirms its adherence to all legally binding sanctions and divestment efforts and decisions against the IRI, despite the arbitrary commercial activities and diplomatic rapprochements with Iran following the "nuclear deal", and is committed to safeguard West Los Angeles from security threats and the commercial presence of that regime, its business partners and advocates.

The West Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, represents 200,000 households and 20,000 businesses located between Mulholland Drive to the north, Culver City to the south, Beverly Hills to the east and PCH to the west, excluding Century City and the City of Santa Monica.
