TEHRAN (Press TV) -- An Iranian deputy finance minister said Tuesday an announcement last month by the World Bank about data collection irregularities used in compiling the annual Doing Business reports proved Iran was right in its criticism of the body and its rankings. Muhammad Ali Dehqan said for years Iran was of the view that the World Bank adopted a politicized approach in issuing its closely watched annual ranking of countries’ business and investment climates. "In dealing with countries, the World Bank has some sort of playing politics and unjust approach which we have repeatedly touched upon,” Dehqan was quoted by the IRIB News.
