Iran official sees no long-term negative impact from Trump election
Iranian central bank vice governor Peyman Ghorbani says they expect to see 'more rationality'
Iran expects no longer-term negative effects from the election of Donald Trump as new US president, despite the anti-Iranian stance he showed during the election campaign, an Iranian central bank official said.
“What has been said during the election (campaign) was for the election competition. We expect to see more rationality on the position that Trump is going to take after becoming president,” Iranian central bank vice governor Peyman Ghorbani told Reuters.
“The administration will come to the point that they have to honor the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) and that’s the only right way forward,” he said on the sidelines of a banking conference in Frankfurt.
“In Iran we have to wait and see,” he said, adding that Iran remained committed to the landmark nuclear deal with the US, Europe and Russia, struck in 2015.
