to Kish Island, Iran in 2007. Today, we reaffirm our commitment to locating Mr. Levinson and bringing him home safely. This remains a priority for the United States, and we welcome the assistance of our international partners in this investigation. We also
call on the Government of Iran to uphold its promise of assistance and help safely return Mr. Levinson to the United States.”
