Just so that everyone is aware who is calling the shots here. “Iran considers offer of US talks,” from AFP, February 19 (thanks to News4U):
Iran is considering holding face-to-face talks with Washington but first needs to see a concrete shift in US policy, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki says.
“We are considering this offer. It would be good if the Americans’ policy changed not only in words but in deeds,” Mottaki said during a visit to neighbouring Azerbaijan on Thursday.
“We need to wait to see differences in (US President) Barack Obama’s policy compared to that of George Bush. If the United States makes steps towards Iran, counter-steps will be made by Iran as well,” he told journalists in comments translated into Azerbaijani.
Asked what changes Iran was looking for, Mottaki replied: “They know well.”
Sure. Everyone knows. First, abandon Israel to the jihadist wolves.
