Iranian president says talks with US possible

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said Tuesday he would welcome talks with the United States, but they must be based on mutual respect. Speaking at celebrations marking the 30th anniversary of the Iranian Revolution, Ahmadinejad said although the Obama administration said it was willing to "bring about a number of changes," he hoped the changes are "fundamental and not just tactical." Ahmadinejad said Iran was ready to hold talks with the US but in a "fair atmosphere and with mutual respect."
