DUBAI- Iran has released a French citizen arrested for entering the country illegally after other charges were dropped, state news agency IRNA reported on Sunday.

On Wednesday, Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said France was in touch with Iran to improve the conditions of the woman arrested in October on the Gulf island of Kish for allegedly signing an illegal mining contract.
"A French national who had been detained for unauthorized entry into Iran has been released in the past few days after legal proceedings took their course and other charges were dropped," Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Bahram Qasemi was quoted as saying by IRNA.
