Russia and Iran have been cooperating to connect their interbank messaging systems in order to bypass the SWIFT financial transactions network, Kazem Jalali, Ambassador of Iran to Russia, said on Thursday.
SWIFT is a messaging network that financial institutions use to securely transmit information and instructions through a standardized system of codes.
Both countries are facing severe Western sanctions, making settlements in trade through SWIFT difficult or impossible.
Recently, the Federal Reserve Banks announced the message specifications for the FedNow Service. While both the Fedwire Funds Service and the FedNow Service plan to use ISO 20022 messages, the implementations of the ISO 20022 standard for these services are separate initiatives.
