US regime announces Iran prisoner swap, $6 billion in Tehran funds unfrozen

Source: New York Post

“The Biden administration notified Congress Monday that it had agreed to unfreeze approximately $6 billion in Iranian assets in exchange for the release of five American citizens held for years by the theocratic Tehran government. The deal, which Secretary of State Antony Blinken signed off on late last week, also calls for the freeing of five unidentified Iranians held by the US. Four of the five American detainees had been moved to house arrest last month from Iran’s notorious Evin prison, in what the White House hailed as a tentative first step as negotiations were finalized. The fifth detainee was already under house arrest. The Associated Press, citing people familiar with the talks, reported that the US prisoners are expected to be released as soon as next week.” (09/11/23)
