Central Bank of Iran’s Governor Valiollah Seif discussed the proposal of establishing a joint bank with Syria. 
Initially mooted years ago but left dormant due to the ongoing conflict in the Middle Eastern country, the proposal was revived during a recent meeting with Syria’s Minister of Economy and Foreign Trade Mohammad Samer al-Khalil in Tehran on Wednesday, according to CBI’s official news portal.
“In view of the positive atmosphere and following victories [against foreign-backed terrorists], we hope that the banking ties of the two nations would deepen more than ever to rebuild Syria,” Seif said.
“As a result, the Central Bank of Iran wishes to put on its agenda dealings with banking delegations to serve as a prelude to expansion of cooperation.”
