Canada formally lifts some sanctions against Iran

Canada has officially lifted many of the sanctions it imposed on Iran over that country’s nuclear ambitions.

The changes executed today embody an end to a ban on financial services, imports and exports.

In this vein, Foreign Affairs Minister Stephane Dion said he wanted to re-start a dialogue with Iran, which effectively stopped in 2012.

Dion says the lifting of sanctions is a clear sign of Iran’s conformity with an international agreement to limit its nuclear research programs.

“Canada today lifted some sanctions against Iran in compliance with the agreement reached by other countries and Iran,” Dion said.

“We do it in conformity with the United Nations,” Dion added.
