TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of Iran-China Chamber of Commerce Asadollah Asgaroladi announced on Wednesday that the problems related to Beijing's payment for crude purchased from Tehran have been resolved.
"A Chinese bank will start its banking exchanges with the Iranian side on December 2," Asgaroladi said.
He added that oil sales to China will start next week and its money will be paid to Iran within a month, noting, "The Chinese side is due to introduce its second bank for exchanges with the Iranian side in a month."
Iranian officials have in many cases reassured that the vow to cut Iran's oil revenues to zero with the help of sanctions is the US wild dream never to come true. Both the Iranian government and parliament have taken preparatory measures to minimize the negative effects to the lowest degree.
Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) Abdolnasser Hemmati announced earlier this month that the country had found ways to receive payments for crude supplied to South Korea, China and India despite the US sanctions.
"We have lots of exchanges with other states, including South Korea, China and India, and we can import goods in lieu for crude exports to them," Hemmati told reporters on the sidelines of a cabinet meeting in Tehran.
"We can exchange currencies of these countries in different ways but we don't need to mention these ways and reveal them to the enemies," he added.
