US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Thursday the Bush administration's decision to break with past policy and send a top diplomat to weekend talks with an Iranian envoy proves the international community is united in trying to eliminate threats from the Iranian nuclear program. "The point that we're making is the United States is firmly behind this diplomacy, firmly behind and unified with our allies and hopefully the Iranians will take that message," Rice said. "It's going to be very clear to them that the international community and P5-plus-1 are completely united," she told reporters at the State Department. The P5-plus-1 is the group of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany that has offered Iran incentives to halt activities that could lead the development of nuclear weapons.
