Iran May Be Open to Nuclear Meeting in 2010, U.S. Says

Iran may be open to meeting this year with the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, including the U.S., to discuss the dispute over its nuclear program, a U.S. official told reporters today.

The official cited signs of Iranian willingness to hold talks, while warning that the regime had still failed to respond to overtures by European Union foreign policy chief Catherine Ashton. She leads efforts to get Iran to return to the “P5 Plus One,” a negotiating forum comprised of the U.S., U.K., France, Russia, China and Germany, to discuss its nuclear program.
