    Berlin, January 24th, 2023. The European Union is tightening sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran. Since Iranian banks have been excluded from the international payment messaging system SWIFT and payments can only be made by transferring cash across borders, German-Iranian foreign trade has also collapsed substantially.
