Italy's Foreign Minister Franco Frattini said Saturday he is sending a representative to Teheran to sound out the possibility of a meeting with Iranian officials after he canceled a visit earlier this week. Frattini said Italy considers talks on regional security issues, especially the stabilization of Afghanistan, "particularly important." "Our troops are in Herat, which shares 370 miles (600 kilometers) of border with Iran," Frattini said, speaking on the sidelines of a newspaper industry conference in La Bagnaia, Tuscany. Italy has some 2,800 soldiers in Afghanistan, mostly in Kabul and the western region of Herat. Frattini scrapped his planned Wednesday trip to Iran after Teheran tested a missile capable of reaching Israel and US Mideast bases.
