INSTEX Issues Time for EU Reckoning

CEO of the Special Trade and Finance Institute, the newly created trade mechanism to reciprocate with the European Instrument in Support of Trade Exchange (INSTEX), says now it is up to Europe to operationalize its trade mechanism. 
Aliasagar Noori made the comment in response to a quote by a German official who had criticized Iran for delaying the setting up of its reciprocal entity. 
He said Iran should not be blamed for what is essentially a European commitment (to guarantee Iran’s economic interest), undertaken as part of the nuclear agreement. “What Iran does is to help Europe fulfill its commitments and the agreement calls for no other action on Iran’s part. Therefore, blaming Iran is uncalled for because it is the other party that breached its commitments,” IRNA quoted him as saying.
