An Australian student has been released after spending a week in detention in North Korea.
Alek Sigley lost contact with his family and friends in Japan and his home country last week.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison told parliament that the 29-year-old was now "safe and well" in Beijing after leaving North Korea.
He added that Mr Sigley, who was studying in the capital Pyongyang, was released early on Thursday.
Mr Morrison's announcement was the first confirmation that the student and tour guide had been detained.
Mr Sigley looked relaxed as he arrived at a Beijing airport, but did not respond to reporters' questions about what happened in Pyongyang.
He said: "I'm OK, I'm OK, I'm good. I'm very good."
Gary Sigley, his father, said his son would soon be reunited with his Japanese wife Yuka Morinaga in Tokyo.
He told reporters in his home city of Perth: "He's fine. He's in very good spirits. He's been treated well."
Swedish diplomats had raised the case of Mr Sigley with authorities in the North Korea capital, where Australia does not have an embassy.
Mr Morrison told parliament to cheers from politicians: "I'm pleased to announce that Mr Alek Sigley has been today released from detention in the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK).
"Alek is safe and well."
He added: "Swedish authorities advised the Australian government that they met with senior officials from the DPRK yesterday and raised the issue of Alek's disappearance on Australia's behalf."
Mr Morrison also thanked Swedish authorities for "their invaluable assistance in securing Alek's prompt release".
He continued: "This outcome demonstrates the value of discrete behind-the-scenes work of officials in resolving complex and sensitive consular cases in close partnership with other governments.
"I'm sure we all could not be more pleased that we not only know where Alek is, that we know he is safe."
