Just Visiting

Iran Comes Knocking

With the United States and Iran preparing for talks about Tehran's nuclear aspirations, the Iranian foreign minister placed a quiet visit to Washington on Wednesday. According to The New York Times, no official meetings were planned for the minister, Manouchehr Mottaki, but his presence in the capital may signal a slight warming of relations between the two countries. American and Iranian officials are meeting in Geneva on Thursday along with five other countries. “What we need to see now are not just words but actions,” an American official said about the hope for progress on the nuclear front.
