Iran needs to take more steps to improve relations with the United States, the White House said Tuesday in response to a comment by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that an "entirely different" situation between the two countries could be created if more steps like the US intelligence report followed. Gordon Johndroe, a spokesman for the National Security Council said, "We totally agree with the Iranian President. One or two more steps are needed. Let's start with Iran suspending its uranium enrichment process." He also said Iran should halt its support for groups such as Hamas and Hizbullah "and then we can go from there."
