The Iran Project - The secretary general of Iran's High Council for Human Rights Kazem Gharibabadi says five Iranians who have been imprisoned in the US for several years will be released on Monday.

Gharibabadi stated that two of them will be arriving in Tehran through the Qatari capital, Doha.

He expressed his satisfaction with the successful collaborative efforts that led to their release and emphasized that the High Council for Human Rights, along with the government and judiciary, will continue to prioritize the protection of Iranians' rights abroad.

In addition, during a weekly press conference on Monday, Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Naser Kanani announced that the exchange of prisoners will be done today, he said, adding that five Iranian prisoners will be released from American prisons.

Two of the citizens will enter Iran based on their request and interest, and one of them will be transferred to a third country due to the presence of his family there, he added.

Kanani also noted that five citizens imprisoned in Iran will also be freed.

He further concluded that Iran's blocked assets in South Korea will be fully handed over to the government and the nation today.

'The process of implementing the agreement regarding the unblocking of Iran's assets in South Korea and the issue of prisoner exchange has progressed at an acceptable speed.'
