Pastor's Wife Pleads to meet with President of Iran

Nagmeh Abedini, wife of American pastor Saeed Abedini who has been imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith since 2012, has made an impassioned plea to meet with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, when he travels to New York City later this month, in hopes to personally lobby the president for her husband’s freedom.

In a letter posted by the American Center for Law and Justice, which was sent to the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the United Nations last month, Nagmeh Abedini highlighted the suffering of her family and the need to have her husband back home.


I certainly hope and pray she gets a meeting and can secure the release of her husband.


It’s really unbelievable to me that the Iran deal leaves Americans behind in prison. Totally unacceptable.
