Below is a written statement from Jason Rezaian, issued today from Landstuhl, Germany:

“I want everyone to know that I’m feeling fine, and I feel lucky to be here at a place where I can get such terrific care. I appreciate everything that has been done on my behalf, and I want particularly to thank the Swiss Foreign Ministry, the Swiss Air Force and the fine doctors here at Landstuhl. I’m staying with my family at a very comfortable guest house on the base, which has been a great place to begin my recovery.”

“I’ve spent a lot of my life writing about the United States and Iran, and I never imagined – and never wanted – to become a part of the story, particularly at such an extraordinary moment. I want to get back to writing the U.S.-Iran story at some point in the future. But I won’t be saying anything further for awhile. I hope everyone will respect my need for privacy as I take some time for myself and for my family. For now, I want to catch up with what’s been going on in the world, watch a Warriors game or two, and see the Star Wars movie.”
