It is difficult to establish economic cooperation without a well functioning interbank agreements. Ask my Iranian friends: “you say that you US announce sanctions. We complain that we announce the sanctions. And who declared sanctions between us? Why are we not actively working on?”, — says the official.
Thus, according to abdulatipova, the official Tehran is ready for such cooperation, as finished, and Moscow. But then the conversation had not yet come.
“You know when both are ready, and act, then there is a doubt. I think we are inert, and the world is very dynamic”, — concluded the special representative of the President of the Russian Federation.
