Kuala Lumpur, Oct 25, IRNA – Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Valiollah Seif has held talks with senior officials at different Singaporean banks including OCBC, DBS and UOB.

The talks which were held in Singapore on Tuesday focused on banking cooperation in line with development of bilateral relations in the economic areas.

During the talks, Seif elaborated on Iran’s economic capacities and stressed importance of expansion of exchanges and banking cooperation between the two countries.

As the state and private Iranian banks are in full coordination with the international standards and regulations, they can resume banking relations with different international banks, Seif stressed.
