Yves Rossier, the secretary of state at the Swiss Foreign Ministry, said his country is prepared to help Iran to reclaim its previous economic position at the international level following the removal of anti-Tehran sanctions.
“Due to its (Iran’s) absence in financial markets, Tehran is lagging behind in finance and technology, especially when it comes to the country’s internal infrastructure,” Rossier told Sputnik on Tuesday May 24.
He said now that anti-Iran sanctions are lifted, Switzerland is prepared to assist Tehran in catching up with other countries.
“[Switzerland’s help] is mostly about technical and technological support to assist Iran in getting back to international financial markets,” the top diplomat explained.
Tehran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany) on July 14, 2015 finalized a comprehensive nuclear deal and started implementing it on January 16.
The agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), terminated all nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Iran.
