Iran - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (23.08.18)

Q – Do you think that a European payment system instead of the SWIFT system, as advocated by the German foreign minister, is a feasible proposal in order to help save the Iranian nuclear deal?

A – France defends the preservation and implementation of the Vienna agreement by all parties.

Together with our partners, notably our European partners, we are looking at ways for Iran to continue to reap, to the extent possible, the economic benefits associated with the implementation of the agreement, notably through the preservation of financial channels and finance mechanisms, provided that it continues to fully comply with the agreement.
