Media: Iran spent $ 1,7 billion from US for military needs


“The Islamic Republic has spent on building up and strengthening its military power the amount received from the United States in the amount of $ 1,7 billion, paid from the funds of American taxpayers. Earlier this year, the US administration paid $ 1,7 billion to Iran to resolve legal disputes that have been going on for decades, ”
writes the edition.

According to the author, "Iran could spend them both to increase its military presence in the Persian Gulf, and to buy Russian multipurpose Su-30CM fighters and C-400 Triumph anti-aircraft missile systems."

In the US Congress, they believe that "this amount was paid as a ransom for the release of Americans detained in Iran," the article says. According to the publication, lawmakers began their own investigation of all the circumstances related to the specified payment.

The article also notes that the State Department is so far refraining from commenting on this issue.

    Everything is fine, it is not always the same for mattresses to use others. And Iran is not obliged to report on the amounts spent. Keep it up.

      This is what the State Department will not forgive Iran. They probably hoped that the Iranians would buy American weapons with that money.

      And what did the scarecrow from the White House expect? What will the Iranians build hospitals for this money? Another 7 months left to endure this insignificance ... Even if Chilka wins, then in comparison with the current m she will be Viscount De Brazhelon

          Conspiracy theories, of course, are sexual and haunt weak minds, but facts destroy them))) The intern appeared a few months before the end of the cadence, when Clinton was a "lame duck" and could not do anything. They tried to copy Dallas in 81 with Reagan. He successfully survived after being hit by 2 bullets in a cage and nothing in his policy has changed. Therefore, all these fantasies about uncles in top hats giving instructions to the president are stupidity for both America and Russia.

          PS We, too, "especially gifted" consider Obama to be a hidden Muslim, who is doing everything to raise Islamism in the world and to bring maximum harm to Israel. The truth is much simpler: Obama is an extreme left liberal and pacifist, hence all the troubles over the past 7 years. And when Iran takes possession of a vigorous bomb, both America and Russia will cough. And we will generally have chills

        Has Hilka changed sex? Speaking of hospitals in the United States: in some of them, according to the statements of minors, without parental consent, they can inhibit sexual development or imitate gender reassignment. In general, the trend for mutilating children, both physically and spiritually, is in full swing. Maybe that’s why the Iranians competently spend money on weapons so that they are not democratically forced to build such hospitals.

        I think that strengthening defense capabilities and purchasing Russian weapons will save Iran more lives than new hospitals. They also build hospitals - but when there is a ring of aggressors around them - and the strongest US empire in the world wants to break through them to us in the Caspian - I would first of all think about security in the place of Iran and fight for my outpost Syria (which they do)

        Iran, of course, must admit it was not very lucky with its geopolitical location - they became the target of the US attack because of the "access" to Eurasia. But on the other hand - they are better off than Libya, for example - there is a common border both by land and the Caspian Sea - and there is an opportunity to always get help from the Russian Federation, KZ and China. No wonder the same railway was built recently

      Now the US has a new chip. All transactions in dollars are subject to US jurisdiction. And some district judge of a nasty Vermont will be able to challenge the deal. Although he knows where Iran is located very approximately.

    This is what I understand.
    This $ 1,7 billion is NOT AMERICAN. They were stored on the territory of the United States, in its banks, and were "frozen" but they are IRANIAN. Iran itself decides how to spend it.
    And every time remembering the "frozen" billions of others in America, every government that wants to remain independent must understand that their money can wait in the United States.

      Formally, you are right. But money in general is still under the control of large banks, and the center of the financial system in the United States. They not only do not return, or return them with a big creak and in a stripped-down form, but they are also able to simply get into the pocket of almost any state.

      With the money received from the states, not American weapons are bought. It’s like a sickle to them.

    Well, Iran’s expenditures should not touch anyone at all, and the fact that they were spent on improving the country's defense capability and not taken abroad or walked in Courchevel, we can only rejoice ...

    But nothing surprising. The whole district has been boiling for several years, the states are collapsing. Just sitting and waiting for the next one is stupid. Today the sanctions have been lifted, tomorrow they will drive into the territory of 10-20 thousand armed democratic forces, and if you sluggishly resist, then you are a tyrant and a tormentor, and if you immediately overwhelm everyone, you are the winner of terrorism. Or they can simply bomb to hell. One must be prepared for everything.

      Despite the fact that the construction of the S-300P in our country was stopped several years ago, the modified S / 300PM used from the Russian Aerospace Forces will most likely be delivered to Iran.

    "Russian Defense Minister General of the Army Sergei Shoigu on Thursday afternoon met in Tehran with the Secretary of the IRI NSS, Admiral Ali Shamkhani, who is also the top official coordinating Iran's political, military and security issues with Syria and Russia."
    http://parstoday.com/ru/news/iran-i29656
    Whatever they say, Iran has an independent policy, as far as possible.
    "Shamkhani said at this meeting that the approach and process of influence of the United States and its allies on the crisis in Syria suggests that they are only pursuing a goal, which is to create a security belt around the Israeli regime, to conduct a PR campaign to influence on the public in favor of their political and electoral goals. "

    "The Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, in turn, expressing gratitude to the IRI for its initiative to hold a trilateral meeting of the defense ministers of Iran, Russia and Syria in Tehran, said that the comprehensive fight against terrorism is an international duty and all countries should participate in this to create a safer world."

    In the future, the United States and Iran will cooperate, and perhaps Iran will take the place of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
