"Jalal Sharafi [second secretary at the Iranian Embassy in Baghdad] has been released and has already returned to his motherland," the agency said.
The source did not disclose any details of the release, saying that it was up to Iran's Foreign Ministry to provide them.
Sharafi was abducted by a group of armed men wearing Iraqi uniforms.
Tehran called the abduction an act of aggression, and blamed U.S. servicemen in Baghdad.
