Bob Ney R- Ohio is a strong supporter of the Islamic Republic. He's hosted many events calling for engagement with the regime in Iran, he's also introduced a bill in congress calling for engagement and support for Khatami's camp.
Not surprisingly Trita Parisa of the NIAC (national iranian american council- which a large group of Iranian-americans believe is funded by the Islamic Republic) happens to have worked for a long time with Bob Ney as a representative.

"The two countries are dancing around the issue of direct talks. Both are being tentative and putting out feelers," said Shaul Bakhash, a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution. "But the fact Zarif is going to meet members of Congress indicates there is a change. Several members of Congress have been wanting to meet for a long time and make a trip to Iran. There are also signs of a change in Tehran," he added.
Rep. Robert W. Ney (R-Ohio) and Sen. Arlen Specter (R-Pa.) hosted the private dinner, attended by about half a dozen members of the House and Senate. "We could have had 50 or 60. There's extreme interest on the Hill on both sides of the aisle," Ney said.
"Iran has signed an important accord that was a huge step that's a piece of progress" Ney added. "There are still a lot of issues both countries have, but it's time for Iran and the United States to sit down and say hello to each other."
