Which country was involved in Iran-Contra other than Iran?


Wiki User

The Iran-Contra Affair involved three nations: (1) the United States, (2) Iran, and (3) Nicaragua. It was a secret arrangement led by US President Ronald Reagan to sell US weapons to Iran during the Iran-Iraq War of 1980-1988 and use the profits from those sales to fund the Anti-Communist Contra Rebels in Nicaragua. In this way, Reagan was "officially" keeping his hands clean of the death and destruction in Nicaragua.
