From Washington Free Beacon:
Former Democratic Politician Leading Effort to Open Business Ties With Iran
Lamont: ‘I’ve traveled a lot in the Middle East, I’ve never felt more comfortable in a city than in Iran’
A failed Democratic U.S. Senate candidate is reinventing himself as the face of U.S.-Iranian commerce, traveling to Tehran with a group of American business leaders and promoting investment ahead of a potential nuclear deal that could lift sanctions against the regime.
Ned Lamont, the anti-war businessman who lost to former Senator Joe Lieberman (I., Conn.) in 2006, visited Iran with a delegation of U.S. executives last month and has been raving about the country’s fertile business environment to various news outlets.
“The Australians are there [doing business], the Brits, the Germans. It’s like Rick’s Cafe. Everybody was there except for the Americans,” Lamont told the Washington Free Beacon. “The hotel [in Tehran] is a hotbed of deal-making.”
The April 11 trip was sponsored by the President Action Network chapter of the World Presidents’ Organization, a global invite-only group of executives over the age of 50. PAN has also brought U.S. business leaders to North Korea and Cuba in recent years.
