U.S. "unchanged" on Iran sanctions regarding Iranian assets frozen in S. Korea: Yonhap

The U.S. reportedly says its position on the Iran sanctions is "unchanged" as Iran continues to demand that South Korea return its assets frozen under the sanctions.
This comes after South Korea's Prime Minister Chung Sye-kun, on a visit to Iran this past week, said that the money is Iran's and should be returned to its owner, though noting that they would first have to find a way.
Yonhap News reported the U.S. stance on the issue, citing a State Department spokesperson who asked not to be identified.
Washington has said before that there will be no sanctions relief for Iran until it returns to compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal.
