Sky News Australia published this video item, entitled “PM speaks on Kylie Moore-Gilbert’s ‘miracle’ release” – below is their description.
Kylie Moore-Gilbert has broken her silence as Prime Minister Scott Morrison briefs the nation about her “miracle” release. Ms Moore-Gilbert has shared her “bittersweet feelings” at leaving Iran and shed light on the “injustices” she was subjected to. “I came to Iran as a friend with friendly intentions, and I depart Iran with those sentiments not only intact, but strengthened,” she said. “Thank you also to all of you who have supported me and campaigned for my freedom, it has meant the world to me to have you behind me throughout what has been a long and traumatic ordeal. “I have nothing but respect, love and admiration for the great nation of Iran and its warm-hearted, generous and brave people.” “I have always believed in miracles and I’m just thankful for this one as well. To see Kylie coming home,” Mr Morrison said. “She seems to be in our own conversations, in quite good spirits, but I imagine there is a lot of processing to go through yet and as she returns home to Australia and adjust to life here again. “So, finally to you Kylie, you are amazing. “Your strength and your courage is an example to all Australians in what has been an enormously difficult year at home, but compared to what you have been going through, well, that is a whole another experience entirely.”Sky News Australia YouTube Channel

Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.
Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.
The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
