South Korea shouldn’t let 3rd country hamper Tehran- Seoul relations: Mousavi

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi referred to a South Korean medical cargo headed to Iran, saying, “We have held two long years of negotiations on this matter, however, the Koreans listen to the Americans, and they have been waiting to receive a green light from the US”.

Speaking at a weekly press conference on Monday, Mousavi said, “While Iran has had seven billion dollars of assets in South Korea, and they were obliged to return it in cash or goods upon Tehran's request, the Koreans have shown negligence under the pretext of US sanctions. We have repeatedly reminded South Korea that Iran is not under any international bans, and the US’ unilateral sanctions cannot be the basis for the actions of other countries, including South Korea and we want to repatriate all our assets”.

“South Korea’s move is a small but positive step, which comes with procrastination,” he noted.

“South Korea should not let a third state hamper longstanding, friendly relations between Tehran and Seoul,” Mousavi went on to say.

South Korea said last week that it would ship $500,000 worth of medicine to Iran used to treat a hereditary disease.
