Sources: Japan makes two more oil payments to Iran

Published: 04.17.14, 11:26 / Israel News

TOKYO - Japan made two more payments to Iran for crude imports that were scheduled under an interim nuclear deal, two sources with knowledge of the transactions said, in return for Tehran's moves to reign in its disputed nuclear program.


Iran's central bank had received the payments from Japan, one source said. A second source confirmed Japan had made the transfers. The payments totalled $1 billion, with one instalment of $550 million due on April 10 and the remainder on April 15, according to a schedule for the transfers on a US Treasury fact sheet.


Japan's finance ministry and central bank have declined to comment on the payments. (Reuters)
