صفقة تبادل سجناء بين الولايات المتحدة وإيران

September 19, 2023 - أفرجت كل من الولايات المتحدة وإيران عن خمسة محتجزين بموجب اتفاق تبادل شمل أيضاً تحويل 6 مليارات دولار من الأصول الإيرانية المجمدة سابقاً في كوريا الجنوبية.

The last pieces in a controversial swap mediated by Qatar fell into place when the Iranian funds held in South Korea reached banks in Doha.

It triggered the departure of the five Americans in Tehran, who are also Iranian citizens, on a chartered flight to Qatar’s capital.

The U.S. has said its citizens were imprisoned on baseless charges for political leverage.

Five Iranians imprisoned in U.S. jails, mainly on charges of violating U.S. sanctions, are also being granted clemency as part of this swap. Not all of them are expected to return to Iran, the BBC said.
