  • Donald Trump Thanks Iran As American Freed In Prisoner Swap

A Chinese-American man who has been detained in Iran on spying charges is to be freed in a prisoner swap.

Babak Namazi, Siamak's brother, has said he fears his father will die if he is not allowed to leave Iran to be treated for his ailments that have been aggravated by his ordeal.

Javad Zarif, Iran's foreign minister, celebrated the return of the scientist released by the exchange for Wang.

Wang, who is married with a son, was a Eurasian history scholar.

He is now in Germany, where he will undergo a medical examination before returning to the US, the official said.

Between January 25 and March 10, 2016, Wang visited Iran to attend a Farsi language program at the Dehkhoda Lexicon Institute & International Center for Persian Studies.

"We thank our Swiss partners for their assistance in negotiating Mr. Wang's release with Iran", Trump wrote in a statement. Our son Shaofan and I have waited three long years for this day and it´s hard to express in words how excited we are to be reunited with Xiyue, ' she said in a statement.

They include former USA soldier Michael R. White, British-Iranian mother Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, French academic Roland Marchal and Australian university lecturer Kylie Moore-Gilbert.

In a picture from a Princeton University press release are Xiyue Wang and his family, prior to his detention in Iran in 2016.

Wang's wife, Hua Qu, tweeted that their family was "complete once again".

"We would like to extend our thanks to the United States government, the government of Switzerland, and the students, faculty and staff who continued to advocate for Xiyue's freedom throughout this ordeal", he wrote in a statement. He was researching the Qajar dynasty at the time of his arrest in August 2016.

Relations between the USA and Iran reached a new low this week with further sanctions slapped on Tehran.

A USA official, speaking to journalists on condition of anonymity to discuss negotiations with Iran, suggested the maximum pressure campaign targeting Tehran would continue.

In 2018, a United Nations human rights panel rejected the Iranian action as "arbitrary" and with "no legal basis", and demanded the scholar's immediate release.

Pregnant at the time of her arrest, she was sentenced to 27 months but released after already serving time in custody.

He was accused of espionage, and was locked up for 10 years in Tehran's Evin prison. However, the Namazis say he remains unable to leave Iran.

An earlier 2016 prisoner swap as the nuclear deal took effect saw prisoners including Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian released but not the Namazis.

Washington has demanded that Iran release all the Americans it is holding, including father and son Siamak and Baquer Namazi; Michael R. White, a Navy veteran imprisoned past year; and Robert Levinson, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation agent missing since 2007.

"We can't help but be extremely disappointed that, despite all its efforts, the United States government was unable to secure his release, especially after such a painful week for our family", the Levinson family said in a statement. There are nearly certainly more, but the exact number is not publicly known, in part because their families have been reluctant to publicise the cases for fear of angering Iranian authorities.

Iranian authorities including President Hassan Rouhani have said that "confessions" of individuals alleged to be "leaders of the riots" will be broadcast on the state-sponsored television.
