Banking problems of Iranian nationals in S. Korea solved

Beijing, Sept 7, IRNA – Iranian diplomatic mission in South Korea in a statement announced that some banking problems facing Iranian nationals in the country have been solved.

Officials of Woori Bank in South Korea expressed readiness for presenting all banking services to Iranian nationals in all branches, the statement read.

Iranian embassy will continue following up the issue to solve the problems with all South Korean companies, it added.

Due to escalation of banking restrictions on Iranian nationals in South Korea, Iranian embassy had earlier announced that it would follow up the issue at high levels.

According to the statement, the problems emanate from US cruel sanctions against Iran.

After Washington's May 8 exit from the historic Iran Deal formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the US gave 90 to 180 wind-down period to other countries before it starts re-imposing oil sanctions on Tehran on November 4.

Part of the US illegitimate sanctions were imposed on Iran on August 9.

Trump also said he would reinstate the US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.
