EU’s INSTEX Postures Are Tired Clichés

EU’s INSTEX Postures Are Tired Clichés EU’s INSTEX Postures Are Tired Clichés

The Governor of the Central Bank of Iran criticized European governments for the procrastination over launching the trade mechanism know as Instrument in Support of Trade Exchange (INSTEX). 
In an Instagram post late Monday,  Abdolnasser Hemmati censured European officials repeating old and tiring statements like “[we] are trying to launch the mechanism,” calling the remarks “lip service and “threadbare.”  
France, Germany and the United Kingdom (E3), party to the landmark Iran nuclear deal, announced in February the creation of a financial mechanism for non-dollar trade with Iran.  
INSTEX is aimed at facilitating trade with Iran by circumventing sanctions re-imposed by the United States after President Donald Trump pulled out of the 2015 nuclear deal a year ago.
