Rouhani hails agreements on unfreezing Iran's assets

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani hailed on Tuesday South Korea, Japan, Iraq, and Oman for their decisions to unblock Tehran's assets frozen in those territories as a sign of "the enemy's failure in its economic war" on the country.

Rouhani also praised the Iranian people's "maximum resistance against the full-blown economic war" and added unfreezing assets would provide a "fresh impetus" to the country's economy.

Rouhani's comments come after the South Korean Foreign Ministry announced Tehran had agreed to Seoul's conditions to unfreeze Iran's assets locked in that country.
