Blurry Fate for Iranian-U.S. Prisoners

             This week, three Americans were released by Pyongyang after spending months in North Korean prisons. However, other US prisoners held abroad are worried about their fate after the U.S. president announced the country’s exit from the Iran nuclear deal. When deciding to withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal, Donald Trump has committed an irresponsible action regarding U.S. foreign policy. Since the nuclear deal was signed, the International Atomic Energy Agency has issued ten reports certifying that Iran was honoring its commitments. According to human rights organizations, the Islamic Republic of Iran has around 30 dual nationality prisoners, including at least five Iranian-Americans. Their families fear that rising tensions between the two countries will hurt the lives of their loved ones and further delay their release. On May 9, several of these families asked Washington to engage with Tehran in talks to get them repatriated.
