Iran ready for more prisoner exchanges with US - Mousavi

Tehran stands ready to negotiate on further prisoner exchanges with the United States, spokesman for Iranian Foreign Ministry Abbas Mousavi (pictured) stated on Sunday. He also noted that Washington is welcome to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) if it repents and lift all sanctions.

"If it is possible to swap prisoners, we are ready to set free the people in the United States’ jails and bring them back to the country. This can happen for all prisoners," Mousavi said in an interview with IRNA, hailing Switzerland's role in facilitating negotiations on recent prisoner exchanges between Tehran and Washington.

Earlier this week, US President Donald Trump asserted it's "possible" to reach a deal with Iran after US Navy veteran Michael White was released by Tehran in the prisoner swap.
