Mikhail Myasnikovich, the speaker of the Belarusian Parliament’s upper house, has underlined the need to remove the existing barriers to expansion of banking relations with Iran.
In a recent interview with ICANA, Myasnikovich referred to the re-election of Hassan Rouhani as Iran’s president and described it as another proof of democracy in Iran.
“Belarus and Iran have deep-rooted relations,” the speaker of the Council of the Republic of Belarus noted.
He then weighed in on the outcome of negotiations with the P5+1 group which led to the conclusion of the JCPOA.
“The agreement has had very positive results and serves the interests of countries in such a way that we can count on it,” he noted.
He then expressed regret that countries are facing a common threat due to sanctions.
“In order to boost relations, we should turn to dialogue and abide by its results,” he said.
The Belarusian speaker then touched upon Tehran-Minsk cooperation in the banking sector.
He said the two countries should upgrade the level of their banking cooperation through talks, and that obstacles to the enhancement of mutual banking cooperation should be removed.
