US PhD student Xiyue Wang has been freed as part of a prisoner swap deal with Iran that also saw Iranian academic Massoud Soleiami released.
Wang, a Princeton graduate history student, was sentenced in April 2017 to 10 years in prison on espionage charges his family maintains are fabricated.
"Our son Shaofan and I have waited three long years for this day and it's hard to express in words how excited we are to be reunited with Xiyue. We are thankful to everyone who helped make this happen," said Wang's wife, Hua Qu, in a message on Twitter.
