State Department Says No Prisoner Swap Deal Made with Iran

Official calls Iranian claims about an agreement a “cruel lie.”

President Biden’s administration has made efforts to get American citizens released who being detained in Iran. However, the White House National Security Council stated that “claims by Iranian officials that we have reached a deal for the release of the U.S. citizens wrongfully held by Iran are false.”

“Statements from Iranian officials that a deal regarding the exchange of prisoners has been reached are another especially cruel lie that only adds to the suffering of their families,” State Department spokesperson Ned Price said.

The White House confirmed that negotiations are ongoing.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary of State Blinken as he oversees efforts to free Americans oversees.
  • For the families of U.S. citizens being detained in foreign countries.
