Iran says the choice for US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's special adviser on the Persian Gulf signals there will be no change in Washington's policy toward Teheran. Iranian state radio reported that the newly appointed Dennis Ross is influenced by Israel and that he supports Israeli actions against Iran's nuclear program. The State Department said on Monday that Ross - a veteran diplomat who has served as Mideast envoy under Democratic and Republican presidents - will be asked to provide Clinton with assessments, strategic advice and perspective. Ross is the latest in a series of high-profile appointments by Clinton to take up especially thorny diplomatic problems for the Obama administration.
