US and Iran to Swap 5 Prisoners Each, Plus $6B in Frozen Funds

America and Iran Reach Prisoner Exchange Deal

America and Iran have reached a deal for the exchange of prisoners. According to this agreement, America will release 5 Iranian prisoners, and in return, Iran will release 5 American prisoners. In addition to this, Iran will transfer $6 billion frozen funds to the Central Bank of Qatar as part of the deal. The sanctions imposed on Iran by the United States will not apply to this fund transfer.

Regarding this release, Iran’s frozen funds, which have been freed as part of the deal, can be used to purchase humanitarian goods.

The U.S. Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, signed this deal during his visit to Qatar. The U.S. Congress was not informed about this decision, as it was not required to be disclosed until September 11th. Supporters of the Republican Party believe that Iran continues to pose a threat to the United States and its allies in the Middle East. This deal is expected to benefit Iran’s economy.

The names of Iranian prisoners to be released by America have not been publicly disclosed. Until now, the United States has not announced the identification of Iranian prisoners to be released as part of this deal.
