President Trump went on Twitter late Sunday to urge Iran to release the retired FBI agents missing in the country since 2007, saying that this was a very positive step towards tensions between the two countries since the provocations on the Strait of Tehran to release Hormuz.
The disappearance of Robert Levinson was the source of the intrigue. He disappeared during an unauthorized CIA mission. Iran admitted on Sunday that there is an open revolution against Levinson.
"If Iran is able to turn to US-led former FBI agent Robert A. Levinson, who has been missing in Iran for 12 years, that would be the case." A very positive move, "Tweeted Trump.
If Levinson lives, he would be the longest detained prisoner in US history.
Last week, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the State Department would provide $ 20 million. A $ 5 million reward has already been paid for information on Levinson's recovery and return.
