US plans to open interest section in Tehran: State Department

 

US considers opening interests section in Iran that would be 1st diplomatic post in 3 decades
 

WASHINGTON (AP): The Bush administration is considering setting up a diplomatic outpost in Iran in what would mark a dramatic official U.S. return to the country almost 30 years after the American embassy was overrun and the two nations severed relations.

 

Even as it threatens the Iranian regime with sanctions and does not rule out military action over its nuclear program, the administration is floating the idea of opening a U.S. interests section in Tehran similar to the one the State Department runs in Havana, diplomatic and political officials told The Associated Press on Monday.

New York, June 24, IRNA - US Undersecretary of State William Burns said the US is eager to demonstrate goodwill to the Iranian people by operating interest section in Tehran.

 

 

Iran operates interest section in Washington for granting visa for the American people.

 

"We know that it's difficult for Iranians sometimes to get to Dubai," US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice told reporters Monday aboard her plane en route to a conference in Germany.

 

She said that the US Administration is studying to take reciprocal action for the Iranian people applying for visa to visit the United States.
