The governor of the Central Bank of Iran discussed bilateral banking and monetary cooperation with senior Swiss and Turkish diplomats on Thursday.  
In the meeting with Abdolnasser Hemmati, the Swiss Ambassador Markus Leitner said his country wants normal banking and commercial ties with Iran. 
Leitner said his government has undertaken efforts to open a banking channel with Iran. 
“The two countries have always had close ties and our banking relations should not be constrained by US sanctions,” the senior diplomat was quoted as saying by the CBI website. 
Hemmati said Iran welcomes efforts by the Swiss to improve banking and commercial relations, adding that the improvement is in the interest of both countries.
