Israel's former army chief of staff said Wednesday he believes international sanctions are the world's best hope for preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
The head of Iran's central bank warned that oil prices will rise above $150 a barrel if economic sanctions against the Islamic theocracy are not lifted soon.
The governor of Iran's central bank, Mahmoud Bahmani, said the plunge of the rial is the result of a rush on the market by buyers seeking to obtain the dollar, rather than other economic reasons.
In a recent interview with The Washington Times, Iran Central Bank Governor Mahmoud Bahmani claimed that sanctions were having "no effect" on his country's cash flow and that the Islamic republic's economy was "stronger than before."
