ImageROME (AFP) — US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in favour of Iran attending a meeting on Afghanistan in June when G8 foreign ministers gather in Italy, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said Saturday.

Frattini, who met Clinton in Washington this week, told reporters she had expressed "her positive opinion on the subject of the eventual participation of Iran" at the talks to take place in the Italian city of Trieste.

"Our objective is to have the Iranian and American foreign ministers seated at the same table," he added, referring to the talks that will focus on restoring stability in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

He recalled that, for US President Barack Obama, the "absolute priority is the stabilisation of the most dangerous region in the world" — the Afghan-Pakistan border.

Iran and the United States both attended a meeting on Afghanistan that took place in March in The Hague, on the margins of which the Obama administration carried out its first direct contacts with the Islamic republic.
