Iran’s exports to Russia exceed $1 billion for first time

An Iranian journalist and social media activist says the country’s exports to Russia have surpassed $1 billion for the first time.

In a post on his Twitter account on Friday, Abdolrahim Ansari said that it has become possible for Iran and Russia to use their domestic rial and ruble currencies in bilateral trade instead of the US dollar.

“A system has been created, in which an Iranian buyer in our country can purchase Russian-made goods in Iranian rial and a Russian buyer in Russia can buy Iranian goods in Russian ruble,” he added.
