Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice voiced skepticism on Friday over a bipartisan panel's recommendation that the US seek Iran and Syria's help in stabilizing Iraq, saying they should want to take such steps on their own. If those two nations truly want to help, "they will act on that because it's in their interest," Rice said. "Let's remember that the issue here is behavior. Can you change the behavior of these states?" she asked at a news conference at the State Department with the German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier. Rice also said the United States is making progress toward a deal on imposing United Nations sanctions on Iran over its nuclear program although "we're not there yet" after a disappointing round of talks among world powers this week.
