The French national was freed a few days ago after legal procedures were completed, Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qasemi said Monday. 

"Other charges" against her were dropped, Qasemi said without elaboration.

On Wednesday, France's Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told French lawmakers that Paris was in touch with Tehran to improve the conditions of the woman arrested in October on Iran's Kish Island.
