Governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), Abdul Nasser Hemmati, has said foreign currency policies of the Central Bank will scupper US efforts to destabilise Iran's currency market.

Iran Press/Iran news: Hemmati, the governor of the central bank (CBI), in a post in his Instagram account wrote: "US government has started a new round of psychological war against Iran but foreign currency policies of the Central Bank will scupper US efforts to destabilise the foreign currency market in Iran."

According to an Iran Press report, Hemmati said: "Declaring anti-Iranian alliance in the weakest European countries' economy, declaring that waivers for Iran oil consumers will not be renewed after US failure to stop Iranian oil export and bring it to zero, such claims show that US does not have any chance of achieving its goals against Iran."

The governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) added: "Foreign currency supplies from India, South Korea, China and expansion of bilateral trade with Turkey, Iraq and others neighbouring countries, very significant foreign currency reserves and the effective interventions, management and presence of Iran's Central Bank in the currency market, will scupper any US effort to bring turmoil to the currency market."

The head of the Iranian Central Bank went on to warn: "One of US tools for destabilisation of currency markets is spreading lies and rumours about Iran's banking system, so the Iranian people should be extra vigilante in this regard."
