Iran knows nothing about the whereabouts of Robert Levinson, the former Jewish FBI agent who was last seen on an Iranian island in 2007. The American government said at the time he was on a private trip, but it has since been revealed he was working for the CIA.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told CBS’s Face the Nation on Sunday, “What we know is that he is not incarcerated in Iran. If he is, he’s not incarcerated by the government and I believe the government runs the, pretty much, good control of the country.”
He said that if Levinson is found in Iran, the regime “will certainly discuss” returning him and added, “Everything’s possible but I’m saying that we have no traces of him in Iran.”Jewish Press News Briefs
