President Obama met Monday with Jason Rezaian, The Washington Post reporter freed from captivity in Iran two months ago.

Mr. Rezaian, who had been held on espionage charges since July 2014, met briefly with Mr. Obama during the president’s visit to the State Department. During his address to diplomats, the president cited “detained Americans coming home” as one of his administration’s achievements.

Mr. Rezaian was released along with three other U.S. prisoners as Iran’s nuclear deal was being implemented, an agreement that included the lifting of economic sanctions.
