Obama Says He’ll ‘Make A Push’ For Dialogue With Iran ‘In The Coming Months’


During his press conference today President Obama denied a recent New York Times report that bilateral talks with the Iranians are imminent, but said “there is still a window of time for us to resolve this diplomatically,” and that he would “make a push in the coming months to see if we can open up a dialogue between Iran and not just us but the international community, to see if we can get this thing resolved.” “We’re not going to let Iran get a nuclear weapon,” Obama said, adding that “there should be a way in which they can enjoy peaceful nuclear power while still meeting their international obligations.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton made similar remarks in September.
