Moscow and Tehran are actively working on opening a joint bank with plans to carry out operations in national currencies, according to the former president of the Russia-Iran Friendship Society Bahram Amirahmadiyan. The decision on setting up the bank was agreed last year but Western sanctions against Tehran have been the main obstacle. “Of course, the prospect of Russian banks opening in Iran is very attractive and important because it can widen and improve our economic cooperation,” Amirahmadiyan told Sputnik news agency, adding that banking cooperation between the two countries has a long history. According to the official, Moscow and Tehran want to carry out all trade operations in national currencies but the plan has yet to be resolved. “At the moment, all banking operations between Russia and Iran are carried out in dollars or euro. It's very inconvenient, because all these operations are controlled either by the EU or US central banks," Amirahmadiyan said. Well America we have seen this happen before in the last 30 years alone, and that is when foreign nations escape the dollar war follows. This is the main reason of our governments beef with Russia, due to Russia trying to escape the slavery of the Federal Reserve bank note. Due to Russia and Iran trying to escape the dollar in their own created banking system, which just adds to the fuel for the anti Russian propaganda you see in the American mainstream. Due to this America get ready for relations to intensify based on lies.
