Reuters: President Jalal Talabani supports a call by a Shi’ite leader for Iran and the United States to hold talks to resolve their differences over Iraq and ways of stabilizing it, his office said on Sunday. BAGHDAD (Reuters) – President Jalal Talabani supports a call by a Shi’ite leader for Iran and the United States to hold talks to resolve their differences over Iraq and ways of stabilizing it, his office said on Sunday.

The Iraqi president said the issue of talks was raised on a visit he made to Tehran a few months ago, a statement from his office said, summarizing talks he held on Saturday with British Defense Secretary John Reid.

“We received primary approval from Iran when I visited a few months ago,” the statement quoted Talabani as saying.

“We confirmed at that time the necessity of opening such a dialogue and the Iranian side accepted on two conditions. The first was the talks would be secret and the second was that all disputes between Iran and the United States would be discussed.”

Iraqi Shi’ite leader Abdul Aziz al-Hakim urged Iran last week to hold talks with the United States over Iraq.
