Prisoners exchanged between Iran and the USA

Iran and the US have reached a settlement on exchange of a number of prisoners, Justice Department said on Saturday.

Prosecutor Abbas Jaafari told IRNA that four dual nationality Iranian-American prisoners, passing prison terms in Iran, will be exchanged with seven Iranian nationals languishing at the US jails.

The settlement included a clause according to which the US will no longer pursue extradition of 14 Iranians for alleged involvement in purchasing arms from the US to Iran.
