Rouhani: INSTEX Good but Not Enough

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the conclusion of the first transaction via INSTEX – a payment channel that the three EU signatories to the JCPOA have set up to maintain trade with Iran – was a positive, but insufficient measure. In a telephone conversation with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron on Monday evening, Rouhani described as “positive but insufficient” the first steps that the three European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal have taken to bring the INSTEX into operation.
