Iran raises doubt over coming US-Iran talks

The Iranian Foreign Ministry cast doubt Sunday on whether a second round of US-Iran talks on the situation in Iraq would take place this month, saying no decision had taken on a follow meeting. On May 28, US and Iranian diplomats met for four hours in Baghdad to discuss security in Iraq. Afterward, Iranian Ambassador Hassan Kazemi Qomi told The Associated Press that the two sides would meet again in less than a month. On Sunday, however, Foreign Ministry spokesman Mohammad Ali Hosseini told reporters that Iran had not agreed to a second round this month. He said the Iranians were studying the results of the May 28 talks and would decide later whether to continue them.
