ICCIM Chairman: “Iran sanctions threaten regional economy”

Wednesday, 4 July 2012

Chairman of Iran’s Chamber of Commerce, Industries and Mines (ICCIM), Mohammad Nahavandian, said that a number of regional countries such as Pakistan, Georgia and some other Arab countries have asked the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) to oppose the tightening of sanctions against Iran. Nahavandian said the call was made in the final statement of the Fourth Regional Meeting for the Broader Middle East and North Africa International Chamber of Commerce in Tbilisi, Georgia in late May. He said that regional countries said they would be badly affected by unilateral sanctions, because of the ensuing disruptions in the world’s financial, banking and transport sectors. He downplayed recent sanctions against the Iranian oil sector and said the countries that have imposed such embargoes will not achieve their “declared political objectives… Westerners were not the only buyers for the Iranian oil, and there are other customers around the world who want to buy Iran’s crude either directly or indirectly.”
