IRANIAN OFFICIALS SAID MONDAY THAT THE ISLAMIC REPUBLIC’S CENTRAL BANK HAS SUCCESSFULLY REPATRIATED 13 TONS OF GOLD AS PART OF A PACKAGE OF SANCTIONS RELIEF PROVIDED TO IRAN BY U.S. AND WESTERN POWERS.
EDITOR’S NOTE: After all this time and all the talk, US president Barack Obama and the United States have failed and are failing to stop Iran from obtaining both nuclear power and weaponry. Obama has ordered sanctions, the only thing really preventing a nuclear Iran, to be stopped, and has rewarded the terror-supporting rogue nation by releasing 13 tons of gold back to them. Mission Accomplished.
The gold was transferred to Iran by the government of South Africa, which had been holding onto the assets due to harsh sanctions meant to pressure Tehran to rein in its rogue nuclear program. The gold appears to have been released as part of a sanctions relief package that will have awarded Iran nearly $12 billion in unfrozen cash assets by the time negotiations wrap up next week.
