President Donald J. Trump statement on the Release of Xiyue Wang from Iran

Dec 07, 2019(White House statements & releases):

The President Donald Trump on the release of Xiyue Wang from Iran said that after more than three years of being held prisoner in Iran, Xiyue Wang is returning to the United States.  A Princeton University graduate student, Mr. Wang had been held under the pretense of espionage since August 2016.  We thank our Swiss partners for their assistance in negotiating Mr. Wang’s release with Iran.  The highest priority of the United States is the safety and well-being of its citizens.  Freeing Americans held captive is of vital importance to my Administration, and we will continue to work hard to bring home all our citizens wrongfully held captive overseas.
