A senior official in Iran’s Central Bank, Hussein Yaqoubi Mayab, has noted that the seizure on 21 tons of Iran’s gold assets has been lifted and Iran’s gold assets have been returned to the country.

According to IRIB World Service, in an interview with the Saturday edition of Tehran-based paper “Iran”, this senior official of Iran’s Central Bank added that the first part of these gold assets was eight tons of gold, which was purchased after the initial Geneva agreement, and the second part of these gold assets covered thirteen tons of gold which were bought from South Africa in the past eight years, but were frozen in an account of one of the banks in South Africa, which is affiliated to a major British bank, under the pretext of sanctions.

He added that the thirteen tons of released gold assets of Iran were directly delivered to the officials with a freighter, within the framework of three consignments.
