Iran feels ready for dialogue with US

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has said he would welcome talks with the US as long as they were based on “mutual respect”. Speaking on the 30th anniversary of the Islamic revolution in Iran, he said Iran would welcome change from the US as long as it was “fundamental”.

He said: “The Iranian nation is ready to hold talks… in a fair atmosphere.” The two nations cut ties in 1979 after the revolution, when the US embassy in Tehran was occupied for 444 days.

Odd how the word dialogue works with dictators especially when they are dressed in cleric uniform!
