NATO Secretary-General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer says he can envision Iran playing a role one day in helping to stabilize Afghanistan. De Hoop Scheffer says a broader regional approach is needed to help put down the insurgency in Afghanistan. He says that will involve more focus on Pakistan, but could even include Iran one day. He said Friday that this does not mean NATO plans to enter into dialogue with Iran immediately but that Tehran could be involved "at a certain stage ... in a regional approach toward Afghanistan."
