This is the case where South Korean Government has become more catholic than the Pope.!!.
Now that fascist Trump is out of office the Koreans will be under much less pressure. They have the ability to release Iranian funds without any delay. They are just trying to be perfect American puppies. Shameful.

South Korea asks Qatar to help get back ship from Iran

South Korea has sought Qatar's assistance to secure the release of a ship and its crew detained by Iran, local media reported on Thursday.

Choi Jong-kun, South Korea’s first vice foreign minister, made the request during meetings with top Qatari officials, according to Yonhap News Agency.

Jong-kun met Mohammed bin Abdulrahman bin Jassim al-Thani, Qatar’s deputy prime minister and foreign minister, and Soltan bin Saad al-Muraikhi, minister of state for foreign affairs, separately in Doha on Wednesday.

He requested “the maximum support possible from the Qatari side to resolve the matter,” the South Korean Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

Jong-kun held talks with his Iranian counterpart Abbas Araqchi in Tehran on Monday but the two sides failed to reach an agreement.

Iran has urged Seoul to “avoid politicizing the issue,” while pressing for the release of over $7 billion worth of Iranian assets frozen in South Korea.

Fucking losers! Iran saved Qataris when Sauds tried to starve them to death. What kind of a moron could think that Qatar could do something?

I thought of that also..why would they go to Qatar..one possible answer could be:....Qatar will pay Iran the owed $$ amount and in return South Korea will export goods to Qatar to match the funds...:undecided:

Iran not to accept Qatar mediation to release impounded Korean tanker

The Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh on Sunday said Iran will not accept Qatar's mediation to release a South Korean tanker which the Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) impounded on January 4 in the Persian Gulf.

Responding to a question in an interview with the Iranian Students News Agency (ISNA) on South Korea's appeal to Qatar to mediate for the release of the vessel, Khatibzadeh said Iran has already told the Koreans that Iran will not accept "political mediation" in a "technical matter."


Korean official says Biden may help free Korean tanker held in Iran

A senior South Korean official on Thursday [January 21] said the country expected the new United States administration of President Joe Biden help resolve the issue of Iran’s seizure of a Korean tanker in the Persian Gulf on January 4. “We believe that there will come a situation in which we can find a swift resolution of the issue regarding the seized vessel,” said the official, quoted anonymously by Korea’s Yonhap News Agency.

Tehran denied any connection between the impounded vessel and $7 billion of Iranian funds frozen in Korea due to fear of US secondary sanctions. Iran’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Navy on January 4 said the ship had been detained after “repeated violations of environmental protocols” at sea. The IRGC reported the MT Hankuk Chemi, carrying “oil-chemical products,” and its 20 crew were held at Bandar Abbas on Iran’s southern coast.

The expectation in Seoul appears to be that the Biden administration will ease sanctions. “The frozen asset issue is not because of a lack of our will, but of the structural factor vis-a-vis the U.S. sanctions environment,” the South Korean official said, responding to a suggestion from Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi that a “lack of political will” rather than US sanctions explained Korea’s freeze on Iranian funds.

it makes no sense that South Korea agree to pay 7 billion $ for release of tanker!
but than it reminds me of Obama administration

The tanker has little to do with it really,it was just the iranians way of telling the south koreans that they had finally run out of patience with them and their constant stalling.
What it really comes down to of course,is the south koreans ensuring that they dont get their access rights to the persian gulf revoked.

Some of the members of this board are pathetic.

South Korea agreed to release 1B in frozen funds (out of 7B) and only after US approval. It will be transferred to Bank of Switzerland to be used for humanitarian aid only.

This is victory? This is a sign of power? Your Enemy is dictating how you can spend your own money.

Traitor Reformists are at it again.
Iran's central bank chief fooled people, he lied about an agreement with South Korea to have an excuse to lower the dollar rate which themselves had deliberately increased, the goal is to condition people; Trump was bad/ Biden is good!

My personal opinion is that Iran should ensure the members of current Iranian government are all in the "no fly" list of Iran. After the elections and new government these people have to be investigated for their actions...fair investigation and open to public...
