“The government of South Korea should not sacrifice the Iranian nation’s trust in that country’s products and technology (gained) in recent decades as well as its long-term interests in the Iranian market for the US regime’s demands and pressures,” Mahmoud Vaezi said in a tweet on Tuesday.

It is necessary for the Seoul government to facilitate and accelerate Iran’s access to its frozen money in South Korea, Vaezi underlined.

On Monday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Seyyed Ababs Mousavi denounced South Korea’s “blind” obedience to the US, saying Seoul has no right to freeze Iranian assets.

On June 12, Hossein Tanhaee, the chairman of Iran and South Korea’s joint chamber of commerce told Borna news agency that Iran’s frozen assets in South Korea were between $6.5 billion and $9 billion.
