Canada lifting some economic sanctions against Iran to ‘resume dialogue’

Canada is signalling its willingness to re-engage with Iran by lifting a broad ban on financial services, imports and exports, Foreign Affairs Minister Stéphane Dion announced today.

In a statement, Global Affairs Canada said it had amended its “broad-reaching autonomous sanctions against Iran to allow for a controlled economic re-engagement, including lifting the broad ban on financial services, imports and exports,” and had also updated regulations to conform with recent changes to the United Nations sanctions regime.
