KARACHI: An agreement on Banking and Payment Arrangement (BPA) has been signed between State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) and Bank Markazi Jomhouri Islami Iran (BMJII) on Friday in Tehran.
A statement issued here by SBP said that Deputy Governor, SBP Riaz Riazuddin and Vice Governor BMJII Ghulamali Kamyab signed the agreement on behalf of their respective central banks.

In the next step, both the central banks will invite banks in their respective jurisdiction to act as Authorised Banks for undertaking trade transactions under this BPA.
Details of the mechanism will be issued by SBP in due course, it was stated.
