Iran's potential participation in the upcoming regional conference in Baghdad would not necessarily include direct talks with the United States, an Iranian official said on Monday. "Meeting with Americans on the sidelines of the Baghdad conference is not on the agenda of Iran, for the time being," said Mohammad Ali Hosseini, Iran's foreign ministry spokesman, in his weekly news briefing. Hosseini's comments come less than a week before many of Iraq's neighbors, including Syria, will gather along with US and British representatives to discuss the Iraqi security crisis on March 10 in Baghdad. Hosseini said Iranian officials are still deciding whether to attend, but would do so if they believed the conference would improve the security situation in Iraq.
