Bank Melli Iran did not respond to Reuters’ inquiry about this document.

According to a section of the Central Bank of Iraq’s document, it is stated that due to the losses incurred by your branch in Iraq, its limited activities, inability to develop banking activities, and being included in the international sanctions list, it has been decided to cancel your license.
