We welcome US-Iran talks

Barack Obama made an unprecedented announcement today about re-establishing the strained US-Iran diplomatic relations which was 'cut off' after the late Khomeini's revolution toppled pro-Washington Shah Reza Pahlavi in 1979.

Russia, also trying to rebuild its image due to its war with its territories, has offered to become the mediator.

Iran, still in its joyous mood on its 30th anniversary of the revolution, was quite upbeat about the prospect of the meeting between president Ahmadenijad and Obama.

Ahmadenijad told about 20,000 supporters in Teheran, he was looking forward to the proposed meeting but cautioned the White House that it should be conducted in 'a mutul interest and respect of the two countries'.

Iran has been the subject of international criticism for its uranium enrichment program which many Western governments described would lead to the Persian nation emerging as another nuclear power - a sentiment oftenly regarded as Iran as a fear for attacks on Israel.

The Busher plant, which I visited in 2003 was actually built to supplement energy to its industry and other consumers.

It is hoped the Obama-Ahmadenijad meeting will take place as it will augur well for creating a peaceful environment in the Middle East.

iran perlu mempertahankan haknya dalam memulihkan hubungan dengan amerika.

sebagai sekutu israel, mungkin amerika akan mengenakan syarat, misalnya memansuhkan program kuasa nuklear iran.

jika amerika benar2 ingin berbaik semula dengan iran, tiada syarat perlu dikenakan.sebaliknya ia perlu dibuat berasaskan pengiktirafan hak dan kepentingan bersama

IRAN TAK BOLEH BERLEMBUT DENGAN OBAMA UNTUK MEMULIHKAN HUBUNGAN.

OBAMA MESTI MENGIKTIRAF HAK IRAN UNTUK MEMPERKAYAKAN SUMBER URANIUMNYA YANG TERNYATA DIGUNAKAN UNTUK MENJANA KUASA, BUKANNYA MEMBUAT SENJATA.

BANYAK NEGARA LAIN TERMASUK AMERIKA SENDIRI MEMILIKI KUASA NUKLEAR. KENAPA IRAN MESTI DIARAH MENGHENTIKANNYA?

ADAKAH SEBAGAI SEKUTU ISRAEL, AMERIKA TAKUT AKAN MUNCULNYA IRAN SEBAGAI SATU KUASA BESAR DI RANTAU TELUK SELEPAS TUMBANGNYA REJIM SADDAM HUSSEIN?
