The Foreign Minister of Germany said that new transactions using the EU-Iran trading mechanism INSTEX, designed to allow Europeans continue trade with Tehran without breaking US sanctions, is underway soon.

According to Ibena, New transactions using the European Union’s financial settlement mechanism INSTEX (Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges) will take place soon. 

This was announced at a press conference by the Foreign Minister of Germany, Heiko Maas.

"INSTEX is still in its infancy after the first transaction. We are in close contact with each other, and new transactions will take place as soon as possible," he said.

According to Maas, they will relate to the export of goods necessary to restrain the spread of coronavirus. "Ultimately, this is a big, very urgent topic in Iran," the German Foreign minister added.

"Each individual transaction should and will be carefully monitored to eliminate abuse, especially in terms of financing terrorism and money laundering,"  said Maas. 

On March 31, the German Foreign Ministry informed that Paris, Berlin and the London had their first deal with Iran to supply medical goods using INSTEX, which was created in January 2019 to ensure banking operations under US sanctions against Iran.
