Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian said Sunday that the United States should unfreeze Iranian assets held in foreign banks to prove its seriousness about nuclear negotiations. He proposed that $10 billion be released to show "genuine goodwill and intention". Iranian leaders have demanded total sanctions relief before they return Iran to compliance with the JCPOA, the 2015 agreement limiting Iran's nuclear program.
