Washington Demanded The "Immediate" Release Of Americans Detained In Iran
On the sidelines of Tuesday's meeting in Vienna of the committee charged with overseeing the application of the international agreement in 2015 on the Iranian nuclear program, the US side expressed the Iranian delegation "deep concern about US citizens detained and considered missing in Iran," as a spokesman for the US State Department Mark Toner said.
He added that Washington "Iran has called for the immediate release of these US citizens."
Meant that the Iranian-American businessman Siamak Namazi and his father Mohammad Baqer Namazie, who were sentenced in October 2016 with four other people were sentenced to ten years in Iran on charges of "spying" for the expense of Washington.
He was arrested Siamak Namazi in October 2015 upon his arrival in Tehran. But his father Baqer who is eighty-first day of age and work with UNICEF was arrested in February 2016 when he came to Iran, seeking to release his son.
The United States does not have diplomatic relations with Tehran since 1980, the US State Department official said that "the United States is deeply concerned by information that talks about the decline of health and put them in detention (and) calls for Iran to release immediately Siamak and Baqer for humanitarian reasons."
The US State once again to the case of Robert Levinson, the client's former Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), which is missing in Iran since 2007, said that "Iran has promised to co-operate with the United States to bring Bob to his family and call on Iran to fulfill its obligations".
The United States of these calls in the midst of the return of tension with Iran regarding the site of the historic agreement on July 14, 2015, between Tehran and great powers (the United States, China, Russia, France, Britain, and Germany). The aim of this agreement, which came into force in January 2016, to ensure the peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program, in exchange for a partial lifting of international sanctions on Iran.
It is considered a major diplomatic success for the president in that period Barack Obama, but his successor, Donald Trump said last week that Iran does not respect the "spiritual" this "terrible agreement" which should not be signed. Tehran responded that Washington had "underestimated" the "substance" agreement and "spirituality".
