According to Yonhap News Agency, the Iranian Embassy in South Korea sent a position paper on the 19th to Yonhap on the first official (vice minister) of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Choi Jong-jian’s delegation to Iran a few days ago, saying that Iran has made it clear to South Korea that solving the issue of the issue of fund freezing is currently the primary task.
The Iranian Embassy in South Korea said that when Iranian Foreign Minister Zarif held talks with Choi Jong-kyin on the 11th, he said that the issue of capital freezing was the biggest stumbling block to the development of bilateral relations.
Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Aragazi also said that South Korea should maintain a clear political position and come up with an effective solution to the problem.
South Korea’s suspension of humanitarian transactions with Iran, such as medical supplies and medical equipment, angers Iran, and has not taken effective measures to solve the problem for months.
In addition, the Iranian Embassy in South Korea said about the arrest of the Korean ship that the incident was only related to technology (environmental pollution) and could occur in any country in the world.
Iran has provided the detained crew with complete welfare treatment and excellent sanitation facilities.
