    Even after the sanctions are lifted, bay and large the Iranian banking system still remains isolated and are not well integrated to the international banking. I guess it will take some more time (may be years) for that. Therefore payment always remains a pain in the butt. This I'm telling due to our first hand Impex business experience with Iranian companies. :(

    The thing about FTA's is that the devil is in the details. My experience with FTA's is that they aren't done until they are signed. By draft if they mean a fully drafted and negotiated FTA, then well an good. Otherwise the phrase "there are many a slips between the cup and the lip" applies very aptly to any FTA signing.
