Iraq: US, Iranian envoys to meet on May 28
Iran and the United States are to meet at ambassador level in Iraq on May 28 to discuss security there, Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said Thursday in Islamabad.
"There is going to be a meeting between Iran and the US at ambassador level in Iraq on May 28 to discuss the security situation in Iraq," Mottaki declared, according to AFP. "Nothing but Iraq is on (the) agenda for Iran and US talks," he said. "The talks will strictly be focused on the security situation in Iraq."
Mottaki added: "We are facing two problems in Iraq, one relates to instability caused by terrorist activities and the other by continuation of occupation of Iraq. "We believe that the correct approach to the issue is to look into both areas of difficulties."
