Iran holds talks with central banks of 4 European, Asian countries

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Chief Valiollah Seif held meetings with his counterparts from Germany, France, India and Turkey on issues of mutual interest, including ways to deepen cooperation.

During the talks held on the sidelines of annual meeting of the World Bank Group (WBG) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the Peruvian capital of Lima on Friday, Seif and his counterparts exchanged views about possible measures at this juncture and preparing the grounds for closer ties after the removal of anti-Iran sanctions, the official website of the CBI reported on Sunday.

In separate meetings, other issues, including revival and promotion of banking relations between Iran and the four countries in the post-sanctions era and reciprocal visits by the two sides’ bank officials were raised.

The meetings come against the backdrop of a new wave of renewed interest in ties with Iran after Tehran and the Group 5+1 on July 14 reached a conclusion over the text of a comprehensive 159-page deal on Tehran’s nuclear energy program.

The comprehensive nuclear deal would terminate all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran after coming into force.

Experts believe that Iran’s economic growth would rise remarkably after the final nuclear deal takes effect.
