South Korea bound to unfreeze Iranian assets: Top negotiator

Vienna, IRNA – Iranian top negotiator in Vienna talks Ali Bagheri Kani said on Thursday that the South Korean government is bound to pay its debts to the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Bagheri Kani, who is also Iran’s deputy foreign minister, made the remarks during a meeting in the Austrian capital with his South Korean counterpart on the sidelines of Vienna talks between Iran and the five world powers – known as P4+1.

The South Korean Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Choi Jong Kun said in the meeting that his country would make every effort to pay its debts to Iran.  

The Iranian official, for his part, noted that the US unilateral sanctions are not a good reason for South Korea’s refusal to pay its debts to Iran.

Bagheri Kani noted that Seoul has to act immediately to unfreeze Iranian assets.
