Slovenia Banks Eyeing Iran

Slovenia Banks Eyeing Iran Slovenia Banks Eyeing Iran

Three Slovenian banks, namely Nova  Ljubljanska banka, Gorenjska banka, and SID are negotiating with the Central Bank of Iran and some commercial lenders, to expand banking relations, said Iztok ?ivko, chief executive of Tevel company (specialized in gas and leak detection). “Banks from the two countries are close to agreements, as far as we know,” IRNA quoted him as saying on Sunday. There would be no major problem for expanding trade between Iran and Slovenia, once the obstacles in banking relations are removed, ?ivko said. Nova Ljubljanska banka is the largest Slovenian bank. Slovenian President Borut Pahor, last week, traveled to Tehran, heading a 50-strong delegation. The central European state reopened its embassy in Tehran during the visit.
