Berlin, Nov 25, IRNA-The powerful chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Richard Lugar on Saturday called for direct talks between Washington, Tehran and Damascus over the latest developments in the Middle East.
"I am among those who advocates talks between our government, Damascus and Tehran after a certain point," Lugar said in an interview with the Berlin-based Der Tagesspiegel.
The Republican senator from the US state of Indiana added that American President George W. Bush had gradually abandoned his earlier unilateral foreign policies for an increasingly multilateral approach, citing US-European cooperation on the question of Iran as well Washington's support for the six-party talks with North Korea.
Lugar has repeatedly said direct talks between Iran and the US would be "useful".
