Iran’s Central Bank governor to start ‘economic war’ against sanctions

Mahmoud Bahmani, the governor of the Iran's central bank has announced setting up a headquarters for "asymmetric economic war against enemies' financial plots, including the sanctions," Fars news has reported. "If we want to use the normal rules to deal with the sanctions, we will definitely be faced with problems," said Bahmani. "Therefore, like military wars that we have a series of asymmetric tactics, we should start a series of asymmetric economic wars under these sanctions since these embargos are no less than a military war," Bahmani told reporters in Tehran.
