Iran repatriates thirteen metric tons of frozen gold from Central Bank -- Puppet Masters -- Sott.netIran has secured the release of 13 metric tons of its gold assets blocked in South Africa under US-led sanctions, central bank Governor Valiollah Seif has said.
The repatriation came thanks to the Iranian negotiating team's follow-up of the matter in the ongoing nuclear talks in Vienna, the Central Bank of Iran (CBI) said in a statement.
"An equivalent of 13 tons of gold purchased before and held in South Africa over the past two years due to sanctions and certain obstructions arrived in the country in three consignments and was delivered to the CBI treasury," Seif said.
The transfer took place over the past week and the last consignment, including four metric tons of gold bullion, arrived in Tehran Tuesday night, he added.
"With the efforts of the diplomatic apparatus, the problem of transferring part of Iran's gold assets was resolved on the sidelines of the Vienna negotiations," the CBI statement said.
According to the CBI, the removal of sanctions and Iran's unfettered access to its assets abroad is one of the main objectives of the country's negotiating team in nuclear talks.
