Washington, D.C. (KTRS) U.S. Senator Roy Blunt is applauding the Senate for its passage of an Iran hostage release resolution.

The resolution co-sponsored by Blunt states that it is U.S. policy that Iran should immediately release the three U.S. citizens detained in Iran.

One of those hostages, Pastor Saeed  Abedini  has gained internationally attention. He was arrested in 2012 during a missionary trip to Iran to build an orphanage.

The other two hostages are former U.S. Marine Amir Hekmati, and Washington Post journalist Jason Rezaian, as well as cooperate in locating the fourth, former FBI official Robert Levinson.

On April 27, 2015, Blunt filed an amendment to the Iran Nuclear Agreement Review Act to make any agreement with Iran contingent upon the four American prisoners’ release; however, President Barack Obama issued a veto threat on his amendment the following week.
