Baghdad – Mawazine News

Iranian Ambassador to the United Nations Majid Takht Rawanchi said today, Sunday, that his country “does not confirm the news of the agreement on a prisoner exchange deal between Iran and the United States.”

Ruanchi: Tehran has always emphasized the comprehensive exchange of prisoners between the two countries.
Rawanchi’s statement comes against the background of the Iranian TV and Al-Mayadeen channel publishing a report earlier today that Tehran and Washington have reached an agreement to implement a four-for-four prisoner exchange deal, with the United States releasing seven billion dollars of frozen Iranian funds.
For its part, the US State Department denied the news, published by the official Iranian TV, that Washington and Tehran had reached an agreement to exchange prisoners and freeze part of the Iranian funds frozen in the United States.
On Sunday, US State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters: “The reports that an agreement was reached on a prisoner exchange are not true.” Ended 29 / A87
