Media reports on the agreement between the United States and Iran on the exchange of prisoners are untrue, said Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh.

The reports of the exchange of prisoners with the United States do not correspond to reality. The problem of prisoners was and remains a humanitarian problem, and they have always been on Iran's agenda, and the tracking of their problem was separate from the negotiations on the nuclear deal, he told the press-conference representative of the Iranian MFA.

Earlier, the Lebanese TV channel al-Mayadeen reported, citing Iranian sources, that the US and Iran allegedly intend to exchange detained citizens. The TV channel also noted that as part of the deal reached between the parties, the United States intends to pay $ 7 billion from frozen Iranian assets. The US State Department also denied media reports that an agreement had been reached with Iran on the exchange of detainees.
