Jan 31, 2012 12:00 AM

Iran has $ 120 bn stored in its foreign exchange reserves and possesses 907 tons in gold reserves, according to the chairman of the Tehran Chamber of Commerce.
Yahya Ale-Eshagh said Iran had purchased the gold in recent years at an average $ 600 per ounce. The current price of gold is now nearly three-times that, at $ 1730 per ounce.

The chairman said: “We don’t have any shortage of foreign currency or gold to meet the local demand”.
The official also attributed the recent fluctuations in the gold and currency markets, partially to mismanagement by some state bodies. He called for tighter monetary control by government on commodity and currency markets.

Previously, the governor of the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) had announced that Iran's foreign exchange reserves have doubled in a short time.
