The Iranian authorities committed to allowing Morad to return home to his wife in Tehran on furlough, and we expect them to fulfil that commitment. We continue to lobby Iran and work with the US to secure Morad's permanent release and departure from Iran. He must be allowed to return to his family's home in Tehran immediately. We remain in close contact with Morad's family.
