Govt. spokesman: Iran's blocked assets released

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, Feb 7, IRNA -- Government spokesman, Mohammad-Baqer Nobakht, said on Tuesday that Iran's blocked assets are released.

"What was agreed upon for the release of Iran's blocked assets are met and all the blocked assets have been released," Nobakht told a press conference on Tuesday.

He said the assets are unblocked per nuclear agreement.

"Certain countries like India have no excuse as far as sanctions are concerned and they might have problem in that concern but on the whole, the blocked assets are released," said Nobakht.

To a question on Iran's missile capability, Nobakht said, "We have had military production in various domains within the framework of the national and international rights; however, we do not do something which can serve as a pretext for the opportunists and those seeking excuse; of course, the ill-wishers will use any opportunity but we do not do something illegal."
