Tehran (IP) - Iran's Chief of Presidential Staff urged South Korea to facilitate access to Iran's blocked funds.

Iran PressIran News: In a tweet released on Tuesday, Mahmoud Vaezi said: "The South Korean government should not sacrifice the Iranian nation's trust in its products and technology in recent decades and its long-term interests in the Iranian market to the demands and pressures of the US regime."

He also called on the South Korean government to facilitate and accelerate Iran's access to its blocked funds in South Korea.
