Speaking in answer to a question regarding allegations that Iran has stopped the Chinase finance to replace it with Europe’s, Deputy Foreign Minister on Monday said "We have had no discussion to that effect. Our relations with different countries are independent of each other. No country is going to replace another.”
Morteza Sarmadi added "The job on finance between Iran and China is being accomplished. Talks are going on.”
"There are always technical negotiations between countries, something that comprises the reason for the current series of travels,” he said.
The Deputy Foreign Minister further said "Our relations with China are far deeper than not solve them with talks whenever a problem arises.”
Then in answer to a question regarding Iran’s formerly frozen assets which were freed following Iran’s Geneva nuclear agreement said "$4.2 billion has been freed as was mentioned in the initial agreement. We have used the entire $4.2 billion.”
