Iran sends experts to US to discuss assets frozen by Washington

Iranian experts were sent to the United States to negotiate the issue of the country’s assets frozen by Washington.

ST PETERSBURG (Sputnik) – Tehran has sent a group of experts to the United States to discuss the issue of Washington freezing Iranian assets, an Iranian Central Bank official said Thursday.

“The funds were denominated in the US dollar, but they (funds) were issued by non-US institutions… We are now in the process of investigating this, we have already sent some teams from the government to negotiate with the United States. I am sure that will be settled shortly,” Hossein Yaghoubi Miab, director general of the international affairs department of Iran’s Central Bank, said at the the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum (SPIEF).
