Iranian Government Spokesperson Ali Rebii announced that they are ready to exchange prisoners between Iran and the USA. According to Iran’s official agency IRNA, Rebii made evaluations on the agenda at a press conference in the capital Tehran.
Emphasizing that the Minister of Foreign Affairs Mohammad Javad Zarif had previously explained the attitude of the Iranian administration regarding the change of prisoners, Rebii said, “We are ready for the exchange of all the detainees. If this incident has not happened so far, the reason is that the USA is unprepared.”
“The US should return to an ‘unconditional’ deal”
Rebii announced that many Iranians around the world were arrested as a result of US pressure.
Referring to the issue of the nuclear deal between Iran and the US, Rebii renewed his call on the US to lift the sanctions and return to an “unconditional” agreement.
