Iran's ambassador to Baghdad has confirmed that the United States and Iran will discuss the security situation in Iraq on Tuesday in Baghdad, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported. Teheran and Washington held groundbreaking talks in late May on the same subject, marking a break in a 27-year diplomatic freeze. "The composition of the negotiating teams will include ambassadors of Iran and America in Baghdad, as head of the two teams, with observance of Iraqi officials," IRNA quoted Hasan Kazemi Qomi as saying Monday. On Sunday, both Iraqi Foreign Minister Hoshyar Zebari and US Embassy spokesman Philip Reeker confirmed Iran and the US would hold talks Tuesday.
