Iran has released French-Iranian academic Fariba Adelkhah on furlough for five days, one day after Tehran and Washington wound up indirect talks in Vienna to revive a 2015 nuclear pact.

“We hope it [the furlough] will be extended,” her lawyer Hojjat Kermani told the Emtedad website on Tuesday,

Ms Adelkhah, a resident of France, was arrested in 2019 on national security charges while on a visit to Iran and sentenced in 2020 to five years in prison.

She was later moved to house arrest before being returned to jail in January.
