Tehran hails Switzerland move to reject banking sanctions on Iran

Tehran (ANTARA News/IRNA-OANA) - Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast praised Switzerland's decision to reject sanctions on Iran's banking system.

Talking to reporters during his weekly press briefing, he said Iran hopes other western countries, too, revise their decisions in this regard since it would benefit their national interests.

He further said the recent cyber attacks on the Oil Ministry caused no problems for Iran's oil exports.

Asked about Iran's oil export cut to a number of European countries, he said following Iran`s decision to halt its oil exports to the UK and France, the global oil prices began to rise up causing public political protests in those countries.

He said Iran will halt its oil exports to other countries, too, if they fail to fulfill their commitments.
