مارکوس لایتنر

Tehran (ISNA) – The government of Switzerland is working to advance its plans to launch a humanitarian financial channel with Tehran through negotiations with Iran and US, Swiss ambassador to Tehran, Markus Leitner said.

In his exclusive interview with Financial Tribune, Leitner said, “The financial channel is separated from SPV –which is known as INSTEX- and is going to be used for providing medicine and medical equipment, as well as food”.

“The materials, according to US, are not targeted in Washington’s sanctions against Iran after their unexpected and controversial withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal in May,” he added.
