Obama May Be Prepared to Meet Ahmadinejad

Friday, 13 Aug 2010 07:35 AM

President Barack Obama may be prepared to meet Iranian leader Mahmoud Ahmadinejad — if the regime resumed negotiations over its nuclear program,  Barack Obama’s national security adviser, Gen. James Jones, said this week, according to a report by the UK's Telegraph.

Ahmadinejad requested face-to-face talks with Obama during the UN General Assembly meeting in New York. At that time, the administration did not put forth any positive signals. In an interview with CNN, however, Gen. Jones said “the door’s open” if the Iranians agree to resume talks with the International Atomic Energy Agency.

According to the Telegraph report when asked this week if an Obama-Ahmadinejad meeting were possible, Gen. Jones said: “Ultimately if we find a convergence of paths all things are possible.

“One thing they might do is return our three hikers. That would be an important gesture. It could lead to better relations.”

Jones added that there would be “no point in a theatrical meeting.”
