US to buy Iranian loyalty for $50 bln? State Dept considers “bonus” for Tehran

Iran can get up to $50 billion from the US State Department as an extra bonus for reaching the nuclear agreement.

Marie Harf, spokesperson for the United States Department of State, claimed, that "throughout the extension they're now getting some sanctions relief, which will continue through June 30. They're getting access to money throughout this period as well."

It should be recalled that Iran is also to get $11 billion unfrozen assets as a result of nuclear agreement signed in 2013.

Jonathan Schanzer, a top terrorism-funding expert at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies warns, that "this could be the largest cash infusion to a state sponsor of terrorism in modern history."

Iran is also allowed to retain an underground uranium enrichment facility Fordow, as well as 1,000 nuclear centrifuges. That enables Iran to produce nuclear weapon in just a few weeks.
