February 26, 2019

TEHRAN – Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qassemi said on Sunday Iran has released a French national who had been detained for unauthorized entry into the country.

Qassemi said the French citizen has been released after legal proceedings were completed and other charges were dropped, Tasnim reported.

On Wednesday, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told French lawmakers that Paris was in touch with Iran to improve the conditions of the woman arrested in October on Iran’s Persian Gulf island of Kish for allegedly signing an illegal mining contract.
