Federal authorities moved in Wednesday to seize control of a New York City office building partially owned by a company with ties to the Iranian government.
The move by officials at the Treasury and Justice Departments is designed to stop the flow of funds they say are used to help Iran's efforts to build nuclear weapons
The government alleges that Assa Corp., the building's owner, is a shell company for Bank Melli, which is accused of facilitating the movement of nuclear materials for the Iranian government.

Intresting article. Good move by the Feds. I think its not such a great idea to allow Iranian business, especially state owned banks to operate in the United States. Iran is a threat to the USA and our allies and must be stopped from developing nuclear weapons.
