Robert Levinson is shown with his family in this undated photo.
Christine Levinson, his wife, said in a statement e-mailed to RFE/RL on January 13 that she appreciates Nelson and Clinton discussing her husband's case. She said she hopes the Iranian government will show the "compassion and respect it says it has for all people" and help bring Levinson back to his family.
