December 4, 2018

TEHRAN – The Chinese Ambassador to Tehran Pang Sen expressed his country’s willingness for expansion of long-term economic relations with Iran, IRIB reported.

The official made the remarks during a meeting with Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Governor Abdolnaser Hemmati in Tehran on Tuesday.

“China is interested in expanding its strategic and long-term relationship with the Islamic Republic of Iran, and in this regard negotiations and planning are on the agenda of the Chinese government and various political and economic institutions,” Pang said.

Hemmati, for his part, emphasized the need for expansion of the banking and financial relations between the two countries, saying “Despite the efforts made by the United States to cut Iran’s banking and financial relations with the world, several countries have offered various solutions to maintain and develop their banking relations with Iran.”

Hemmati further noted that the U.S. has failed to realize their intended impacts on Iran’s economy.

At the end of the meeting, the two sides once again emphasized the urgent need for accelerating the removal of banking problems and expanding economic relations in various fields.
