Saturday's outcome, Hatch said, resulted from work across two presidential administrations and with diplomatic contacts, ambassadors and Maduro himself.
He was commenting after Holt, 26, and his wife Thamara Caleno, landed in Washington after Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro ordered their release after two years.
The talks were encouraged by Pompeo, who met privately with Corker on Thursday morning and finalized details of the senator's trip ahead of testifying before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on the State Department budget.

On May 17, Holt issued a plea on Facebook, asking the U.S. government to help him return home.
He was trying to secure visas for Candelo and her daughter when he was arrested for allegedly stockpiling weapons for the goal of overthrowing Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro.
"You were a tough one, I have to tell you", Trump said to Holt, about the process of securing his release.

US President Donald Trump said Holt would be received with his family at the White House on Saturday evening.
Maduro was re-elected to a six-year term last week, but the US joins other countries in rejecting the outcome, widely seen as a result of vote-rigging.

Both Holt and USA officials have denied all charges.
The announcement came as a the Venezuelan government had appeared to be doubling down on claims that Holt was a USA government agent. "I could not be more honored to be able to reunite Josh with his sweet, long-suffering family in Riverton", he said.
Although Corker sealed the deal in a few tense hours in Venezuela's collapsing, crime-filled capital, the push to secure Holt's release began months earlier by Corker's top Latin American policy aide, Caleb McCarry, who both Corker and Sen.
