The Japanese premier's upcoming visit to Tehran with the perceived aim of mediating between Iran and the United States is likely to help reduce the existing tensions although no significant breakthrough is expected, an expert on international affairs said. 
Jalal Sadatian, a former diplomat, also said that intermediary countries do not seek to broker a deal between Tehran and Washington, but aim to alleviate the crisis whose repercussions will certainly be felt throughout the world. 
"Iraq, Kuwait, Oman, Switzerland and Japan are not after bringing Iran and the US to the negotiating table with an outcome like that of the Obama period, but seek to reduce the tension in their relations, which has caused concerns for the global community in general and West Asia in particular," he said in a recent interview with the Iranian Diplomacy website.
