A number of countries are holding negotiations with Europe to use their newly-registered special financial mechanism to continue their non-dollar trade with Iran.
Bahram Qasemi, the ministry’s spokesman, made the announcement to reporters during his regular press conference in Tehran on Monday.
“[The mechanism] will begin with specific goods and countries, and if the progress is positive, it will be available for other countries to use,” he said.
