Question of the Day
Official signals more talks with U.S.
TEHRAN — Iran’s foreign minister said yesterday his country would be open to holding further talks with the U.S. over Iraq’s security, while also criticizing the U.S. for not having a “plan to overcome the current crisis,” state-run media reported yesterday.
The U.S. and Iran held groundbreaking ambassador-level talks on May 28 in Baghdad, which Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said had “revealed very interesting points,” according to the Web site of Iran’s state broadcasting company.
Mr. Mottaki said the talks could be held after assessing the results of last month’s meeting.
Police crack pedophile ring
LONDON — British police, with aid from U.S. investigators, have shattered a global Internet pedophile ring, rescuing 31 children and rounding up more than 700 suspects worldwide, authorities said yesterday.
About 200 suspects are based in Britain, said the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Center, a government agency. Of the 31 children, some only a few months old, more than 15 were in Britain, the center said.
Investigators with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement said they could not immediately comment on the arrests because the U.S. investigation, spanning at least 12 states, is ongoing.
Report: Pyongyang will shut reactor
SEOUL — North Korea plans to seal its nuclear reactor, the source of weapons-grade plutonium, in the second half of next month, Russia’s Interfax news agency quoted an unidentified North Korean diplomatic source as saying yesterday.
Despite more than two months of delay in beginning the dismantling of the North’s atom-bomb program, it would still be possible to complete the nuclear disarmament of the communist state by the end of the year, U.S. nuclear officials said.
