Iran: No Plans to Swap Post Reporter Jason Rezaian for Prisoners – Arutz Sheva

An Iranian diplomat said Tuesday that Tehran has no plans to swap detained Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian for prisoners held in the United States, The Associated Press (AP) reported.

This marks the first time a high-level official has alluded to the possibility of such a trade.

Rezaian awaits a verdict in his closed-door espionage trial in a case widely criticized by the United States, press freedom organizations and the Post. He reportedly faces up to 10 to 20 years in prison if convicted.
