Iran on Sunday said it was reconsidering whether to hold another round of talks with the United States on Iraq after the US military's arrest of an Iranian on suspicion of smuggling weapons to Shi'ite militias in Iraq. Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini said Thursday's arrest would also harm Iran-Iraq relations. "For another round of negotiations to take place, we have to review this event that has taken place," Hosseini told reporters in his weekly news briefing. The US military arrested the Iranian on Thursday in northern Iraq claiming the suspect was a member of the elite Quds force unit of Iran's Revolutionary Guards accused of arming and training Shi'ite militias in Iraq.
