Iran ready for more prisoner exchanges with US

Foreign Affairs Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif said in a tweet on Monday, following a successful hostage exchange, that Iran is prepared for a "comprehensive" exchange of prisoners, noting that "the ball is in the US' court."

Additionally, Ali Rabiei, a spokesperson for the Iranian government, stated that Tehran is ready for further prisoner exchanges with the United States, in efforts to, hopefully, exchange all prisoners eventually.

Earlier, a hostage situation was resolved after the US released Iranian scientist Massoud Soleimani who was detained in Chicago, and Tehran, in turn, released a Chinese-born American citizen Xiyue Wang, who was held for three years on suspicion of spying on Washington's behalf.
