State Department Still Won't Reveal Details of $400 Million Payment to Iran

Via David


The State Department is still refusing to discuss the details of a covert payment worth $400 million to Iran that coincided with the release of four American hostages from Iran in January.

"I'm still frankly not prepared to talk about the mechanics," State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters Wednesday. "There's very little news to this."

The payment, which was sent to Iran in a cargo plane filled with foreign currency, was the first installment of a $1.7 billion legal settlement between the U.S. and Iran for a decades-old arms deal.

The administration has said that the payment, the hostage exchange, and the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal coincided by chance.
