In its first overture to Iran, the Obama administration is pushing to convene a high-level meeting on Afghanistan this month that would include an invitation to Teheran, US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday. Many details about the meeting, expected to be held March 31, are still being worked out, but US officials said the conclave is intended to help implement a US strategic review for Afghanistan, which will be completed in mid-March, and to set the stage for a NATO summit to be held in early April. Clinton announced the plan for the meeting during a gathering of NATO foreign ministers here, telling reporters it would be "a big-tent meeting with all the parties who have a stake and an interest in Afghanistan."
