Five Americans land in Doha after release in US-Iran prisoner swap

  • čas přidán 17. 09. 2023
  • A plane carrying five American prisoners released by Iran as part of a high-profile prisoner exchange has landed in the Qatari capital Doha, before the former detainees are expected to then fly on to the United States.
    Two of the five Iranians imprisoned by the US have already arrived in Qatar, before they transit on to Iran. The three other released Iranians have decided against returning to Iran, with two staying in the US, and one going on to a third country.
    The agreement between the US and Iran has also seen $6bn in Iranian assets held in South Korea unfrozen, triggering the prisoner exchange.

    What is interesting is the role of Qatar in such things. It's so good at smelling money and opportunity that it's always available in such issues. And sometimes do some perfect service for flattering the Islamic Republic, like in the World Cup 2022 that acted as a proxy to morality police in Iran, harassing every single individual with a sign of opposition to the Islamic Republic

      Iran helped us when our neighbors boycotted us even from using their Airspace or marine routes. We dont like to mix politics with trade or sport. We help Iran in return even that our policy dont overlap but Iran is a good, reliable and important neighbor.

    • Nahid
      Nahid Před 13 dny

      @Assoma muhamed First, Iran didn't help you, the Islamic Republic regime helped Qatar government; autocrats help each other sometimes. By the way, in Iran we have still a few people who support the authoritarian regime, as you do in Qatar. Second, if your government is as cool as you depict, why it was too annoyed just by some t-shirts worn by a few at that time? We have already experienced much by the Islamic Republic, so don't play too innocent and light-hearted dear!

    From the look of things, the Americans want this deal more than the Iranians, otherwise it wouldn't have have happened. So all talk about the two sides did not meet face to face nonsense means nothing. They are the junior partners in the deal.

      @Jatt GFalse. It is in USD. Much better than Iran money, at the moment. I like Iran but it is a fact that the revolutionary guard has made some major missteps that resulted in this reality. I think they have become a liability for their country in their current form (much like the military and political "brass" in the USA) and should retire en masse at the higher levels (much like in the USA).

    Iran's prisons are equal to 3-star hotels in America, all prisoners in Iran have the best conditions in all respects. It is no different from 3-star hotels in America, America and its allies and their voices of human rights are very loud, their degrees and democracy... only their voices are loud... and in America, Canada, Europe and the most inhumane regime in the world is the Zionist regime of Israel , and all western countries have very, very terrible cases in history and that garden they say they built from the crimes and looting of other countries and in Africa until today they have been committing crimes and looting and looting the oil of Syria and Iraq and the natural resources of Afghanistan for twenty years. looting and massacring more than two million people in West Asia.. and think of any crime and you don't even think about it. They are guilty of ridiculous crimes and everything they accuse Iran of. They themselves are geniuses and masters in it. ISIS was created by America, the biggest terrorist in the world and supports the thesis of terrorists in the world and criminals... History You have studied 300 to 400 years of the westerners, only crime and killing and massacre, looting, and any crime... the right will win... and the westerners and their allies will pay for their countless crimes. ... Iran is right, light will win over darkness.....
