Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN – Gov­er­nor of Iran’s Cen­tral Bank Vali­ol­lah Seif told the Swiss en­voy to Iran Leit­ner that Iran-Switzer­land bank­ing re­la­tions are sat­is­fac­tory and called for speed­ing up the per­mis­sion process for let­ting Ira­nian banks open branches in Switzer­land.

“Ira­nian banks are func­tion­ing in the frame­work set by in­ter­na­tional reg­u­la­tions and many long steps have been un­der­taken to meet global stan­dards,” said Seif. The Ira­nian of­fi­cial made the re­marks on Mon­day while meet­ing with the Swiss Am­bas­sador to Iran Markus Leit­ner.

“The pro­gram to im­prove the struc­ture in Ira­nian banks, in terms of stan­dard­iz­ing bank­ing op­er­a­tions, ob­serv­ing the in­ter­na­tional reg­u­la­tions, and cor­rect­ing the ac­count­ing and mon­i­tor­ing stan­dards is un­der­way,” re­counted the of­fi­cial.

Dur­ing the meet­ing, the Swiss am­bas­sador to Tehran voiced his coun­try’s will­ing­ness to ex­pand bank­ing re­la­tions be­tween the two coun­tries and also re­counted that Switzer­land is en­cour­ag­ing its banks to broaden their co­op­er­a­tion with Ira­nian banks. He de­scribed the meet­ing as a pre­lude to meet­ing this ob­jec­tive.

He also promised to ne­go­ti­ate with bank­ing of­fi­cials and Swiss banks to speed up is­su­ing per­mis­sions for let­ting Ira­nian banks open

branches in Switzer­land.
