Delays in using released assets blocked by the US

Iran's Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs said that despite the Western side's obligation to not hinder Iran's use of the assets deposited in Qatar, the process goes forward slowly.

Ehsan Khandouzi told reporters on Tuesday that the first LC was open but the opening of the rest of the LCs is being carried out with delay, although the Western side committed to not improvise problems for Iran to use the assets. 

The process of releasing several billion dollars of assets of the Islamic Republic of Iran, which had been illegally seized in South Korea by the US for several years, began in August 2023; Iran received the necessary guarantee for the US commitment to its obligations in this regard.

Iran's financial resources have been illegally blocked or made it difficult for the country to use them due to foreign banks' concern about the US' punishment.

According to the Central Bank of Iran (CBI), all the Euro resources were deposited into the accounts of 6 Iranian banks in Qatar and would be used as bank payments to buy non-sanctioned goods. 219
