Iran And Russia Working On Single BRICS Currency


Iran and Russia are cooperating to create a single BRICS currency, Iran’s Ambassador to Moscow Kazem Jalali announced. 

Iran is actively participating in the activities organized under Russia’s chairmanship in BRICS, and the countries are working to create a single currency for the association, Jalali said in a press conference during “Russia – Islamic World: KazanForum”.

The ambassador noted that Iran, as a new member state of the association, is conducting large-scale work in BRICS, TASS reported.

“The creation of a new single currency within the framework of the association is what Russia and Iran are working on,” the diplomat stated.

Jalali said the United States uses dollar to create restrictions, and therefore the use of national currencies in mutual settlements is on the agenda.

“More than 60% of bilateral trade is in rubles and rials,” he said, adding that the relations between Russia and Iran are now at the “golden stage.”

The 15th International Economic Forum “Russia – Islamic World: KazanForum 2024” is being held on May 14-19 in Kazan. This year’s keynote is “Trust and Cooperation.” The main goal of the forum is to strengthen trade and economic, scientific and technical, social and cultural ties between Russian regions and the countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), as well as to promote the development of the Islamic financial system institutions in Russia.
