Two of five Iranians released in US prisoner swap deal arrive in Qatar

Informed sources tell Press TV that two of the five Iranians who have been released from prison in the United States as part of a prisoner swap deal between Tehran and Washington have arrived in the Qatari capital of Doha to ultimately return home.

The two Iranians heading home are Mehrdad Moein Ansari and Reza Sarhangpour.

According to reports, all the five Iranians are now released.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kaníani told his weekly presser on Monday that two of the detainees will be back home while two would stay in the US at their request. Another Iranian would join his family in a third country.

Meanwhile, five US detainees, who left Tehran aboard a Qatari plane, landed in Doha on Monday and are scheduled to depart for the US.

Speaking to reporters late on Sunday, senior officials of US President Joe Bidenís administration said Washington would keep up the pressure on Tehran by imposing fresh sanctions on former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Intelligence Ministry for their alleged involvement in the detention of US citizens.

Even so, they said the door for diplomacy over Iranís nuclear program was not entirely shut.

"If we see an opportunity, we will explore it but right now, Iíve really nothing to talk about," a senior administration official said on condition of anonymity.

Earlier on Monday, Secretary General of Iranís High Council for Human Rights Kazem Gharibabadi announced the release of five Iranians held in US prisons for years, saying two of them will arrive in Tehran via the Qatari capital.

"After a successful team effort, five innocent Iranian compatriots in American prisons will be free today and two of them will enter Tehran via Doha," Gharibabadi wrote on his X account.

"The High Council for Human Rights, alongside the government and the judiciary, will remain determined to uphold the rights of Iranians abroad," he added.

The prisoner swap between Iran and the US was carried out thanks to a Doha-brokered deal between the two countries that also unfroze $6 billion of Tehranís funds.

Governor of the Central Bank of Iran Mohammad Reza Farzin on Monday confirmed that the Islamic Republicís funds totaling $6 billion have been transferred to Qatari banks.

He announced the release of Iranís blocked financial assets in South Korea and said 5.573 billion euros had been deposited into the accounts of six Iranian banks in Qatarís Al Ahli and Al Dukhan banks.
