US targets Iran for alleging delay in prisoner swap

Washington. US President Joe Biden’s administration on Saturday hit out at Iran for accusing it of delaying a proposed prison swap to force it to begin immediate indirect nuclear talks. The US State Department called the comments of Iran’s deputy secretary of state “outrageous”. Iran’s deputy foreign minister has accused the United States and Britain of using a “hostage” trick to save the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

Syed Abbas Aragchi said in a series of tweets from his confirmed account that nuclear talks in Vienna cannot be resumed until Iran’s hardline newly elected president takes office in early August. “We are in the era of transfer of power. Nuclear talks will have to wait for our new administration. This is the demand of every democracy.
