The recent interaction between Iran and the United States on humanitarian grounds (referring to the recent prisoner swap) should be extended to the political field and international mediation efforts should be embraced, says a foreign policy expert who believes "smart negotiations" would serve the Iranian nations' interests. 
"Clever diplomacy requires that Iran welcome mediation efforts by any country, because there is no harm in adopting such an approach. Even if such efforts are not successful, Iran will not be blamed for a standoff or crisis," Javid Qorbanoghli also told the Iranian Diplomacy website in a recent interview. 
He said "extensive efforts" are underway by regional and international mediators to improve Tehran-Washington ties and the recent prisoner swap could be a good starting point to address outstanding issues.
