Iran positive but noncommittal about talks with U.S.
“So I think that’s very key, that when that moment comes, there’s actually some forward momentum built into the talks,” Mr. Nasr said.
Iran is a key ally of embattled Syrian President Bashar Assad. On the sidelines of the Munich meeting, the minister met the top Syrian opposition leader, Moaz al-Khatib.
Mr. Salehi welcomed Mr. al-Khatib’s statements over the past week that he would be willing to sit down with representatives of Mr. Assad’s regime as “a good step forward.”
But amid international calls for Mr. Assad to go, he insisted that “we do not need prescriptions from outside.”
“We are ready to be part of the solution,” he insisted. “The sooner that we resolve the issue, the better it is.”
