Obama To Launch Direct Talks With Iran

By: Stewart Stogel

UNITED NATIONS – The United States is set to launch direct talks with Iran without any apparent preconditions, according to President Barack Obama’s new United Nations ambassador.

The offer of direct contacts is a break with the Bush White House, which insisted that Tehran first comply with UN resolutions before any direct meetings take place. The Bush administration had been pushing last year for a fourth round of UN sanctions against Iran for refusing to suspend its uranium enrichment program.
