The US government agreed to let five prisoners go in exchange for five Iranian prisoners and billions of dollars in frozen assets. But after the deal between Iran and Washington, it looks like the White House is more focused on getting a deal between Saudi Arabia and Israel than trying to revive the 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran, also known as the JCPOA.
It looks like the prisoner swap between the US and Iran was a lot more than what was reported in the news. According to anonymous diplomatic sources, the deal included freezing Iranian enrichment at 60%, allowing the IAEA to install cameras at nuclear sites, and giving the US concessions like not taxing Iranian oil sales and releasing all Iranian assets worth around $20 billion. That’s a lot more than the $6 billion that was reported in the press.
