Obama to meet with Iranian president after UN speech?
This is quickly becoming the handshake heard around the world. Obama will probably bow again….
Check it out:
President Obama announced Tuesday that he’s directed Secretary of State John Kerry to pursue a new round of talks with Iran over its nuclear program, amid warnings from U.S. lawmakers to view the promises of Iran’s new president with caution.
The president made the announcement in his address before the annual gathering of the U.N. General Assembly.
“The roadblocks may prove to be too great, but I firmly believe the diplomatic path must be tested,” Obama said.
Obama acknowledged that Iranian President Hassan Rowhani, who plans to address the body Tuesday afternoon in New York, has signaled interest in charting a more “moderate” course and disavowed interest in pursuing the development of a nuclear weapon.
