This seems like good news from the Iranian presidential election:
An Iranian presidential candidate who is wanted by Interpol in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish center in Argentina said Sunday he is willing to cooperate with the U.S. on regional security matters if elected. Conservative candidate Mohsen Rezaei, speaking to reporters in Iran’s capital, also criticized hard-line President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad for his handling of the faltering economy and said his questioning of the Holocaust has ”no benefit.”
But of course the fact that he’s a wanted man on serious international terrorism charges seems likely to put a crimp in negotiations. On the other hand, it seems likely that any rapprochement will need to include a slightly weird chorus of mutual apologies for various wrongdoings so maybe this can go on the list. At any rate, the world’s been watching for some sign of Iranian interest in Obama’s overtures and this looks to be it.
