(Caracas, November 12. Noticia24) .- Sigal Mandelker, Undersecretary of the US Treasury, announced that the Central Bank of Iran was disconnected from the SWIFT international system, including other financial entities, and stressed that Washington would strictly enforce the sanctions regime against Tehran, according to Reuters.

In addition, Mandelker noted that Washington is not concerned that an entity is created as a special role in the European Union to work with Iran and believed that the United States and Europe can continue to work together.

Last month, SWIFT suspended its services to several Iranian banks following US sanctions imposed by the country, justifying the measure for the sake of "the stability and integrity of the global financial system," the Belgian organization explained.. On Tuesday, the Iranian Central Bank said it had alternative mechanisms capable of replacing the SWIFT international interbank system.
