Biden seeks release of citizens held in Iran

-

The Biden administra­tion is in contact with Iran to demand the release of Americans held in the Islamic republic, an issue that will help determine future relations between the countries, national security adviser Jake Sullivan said.

While Iran says it won’t negotiate unless the U.S. rejoins a nuclear accord abandoned by the Trump administra­tion, Sullivan said “the script has been flipped” because President Joe Biden has offered to re-engage with Tehran.
