Iran-US-Asefi
Foreign Ministry spokesman Hamid-Reza Asefi said on Thursday that Iran is skeptical about good faith of the US overture to hold direct talks with Iran.

Asefi made the remarks in reaction to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice who said on Wednesday that US administration is considering direct talks with Iran on multilateral arrangement on Iraq.

Asefi said that the US overture is not compatible with its behavior which proved hostile towards Iran.

"Before any suggestion, US administration should revise its behavior and attitude towards Iran," Asefi said.
