IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Media reports that ExxonMobil is lobbying the U.S. government on Iran sanctions are inaccurate.

“ExxonMobil is not lobbying on Iran sanctions,” said Ken Cohen, vice president of Public and Government Affairs.

“Erroneous media reports resulted from errors in a consultant’s lobbying disclosures. Current U.S. law prohibits American companies from operating in Iran.”
