First Paragraph

On January 17, 2016, the United States of America (“U.S.”) landed a plane carrying $400 million in euros, Swiss francs, and other foreign currencies in the Iranian capital of Tehran.

The plane carried the first of three payments that were delivered over the next several weeks, and which would fulfill the terms of a $1.7 billion settlement resulting from negotiations carried out at the Iran-United States Claims Tribunal (“IUSCT”) in The Hague.
