Kerry: U.S. Still Looking For Missing CIA Agent In Iran


Secretary of State John Kerry on Sunday said that the U.S. has not given up looking for the CIA agent that went missing in Iran in 2007.

“Well, there hasn’t been progress in the sense that we don’t have him back,” he said on ABC’s “This Week,” according to an early transcript. “But, to suggest that we have abandoned him or anybody has abandoned him is simply incorrect, and — and not helpful.”

Kerry said that the U.S. is hoping for help from the Iranian government in their search for CIA agent Robert Levinson.

“We’re looking for proof of life. We’re working on several processes that I’m not free to talk about. But there are a number of different channels that are being worked aggressively,” he said. “I think the Iranian government — I can’t tell you what happened or how the sequence was, but I think the Iranian government has the ability to help us here, and we hope they will.”
