Iranian President Hasan Rouhani said the Islamic Republic reached agreements with South Korea, Japan, Iraq and Oman to unfreeze Iranian funds.
In comments at a Tuesday meeting of the Administration’s Economic Coordination Headquarters, Rouhani lauded the agreements as an omen of the Islamic Republic’s victory against the economic war.
Pointing to a report from the governor of the Central Bank of Iran about the agreements on the release of the Iranian currency assets, Rouhani said the promising signs of the enemy’s failure in its economic war on Iran are beginning to emerge.
“The futility of sanctions on Iran is becoming clearer. The Iranian people’s maximum resistance against the full-blown economic war imposed by the enemy is yielding results,” ,” the Iranian president noted, as quoted by Tasnim news agency.
“One of the outcomes is the release of the Iranian currency resources blocked illegally and unjustly,” he added, stressing that the unfreezing of the assets will give fresh impetus to the country’s economy.
After a Monday meeting in Tehran, the governor of the Central Bank of Iran and South Korea’s ambassador reached an agreement on how to release and spend part of Iran’s assets blocked in South Korea.
The two sides have come to an agreement on transferring the Iranian financial resources to certain destinations, as South Korea has been informed about the CBI’s decisions about the volume of the transactions and the destination banks.
The South Korean ambassador has reportedly expressed Seoul’s readiness to take whatever measures necessary to use all of Iran’s financial resources in South Korea “without any limits”.
