On November 24, in Geneva, Iran and G5+1 agreed that Iran will not enrich uranium beyond five percent and give access to IAEA inspectors in return for access to Iranian assets frozen with the foreign banks.

Experts say that removal of the arbitrary sanctions will enable Iran to take delivery of dlrs 20 billion from the frozen assets.
