The Decree permits "all transactions between a credit institution that is included in the catalogue and an international customer."
"All transactions between a credit institution that is included in the above mentioned catalogue, by the order of an international customer or for their own account, and an entity outside the Republic are permitted and are not subject to any restrictive measure imposed under any other Decree issued under the Law," the Decree adds.
