J.P. Morgan Chase has agreed to pay $5.3 million to settle allegations it violated Cuban Assets Control Regulations, as well as Iranian and Weapons of Mass Destruction sanctions, 87 times, the U.S. Treasury said on Friday.

Treasury also said it had found the bank violated sanctions on narcotics and Syria, when it processed 85 transactions and maintained accounts for six sanctioned individuals.
