Straw: UK grateful for Iran's mullahs

Persian Journal
Apr 24, 2004

British Prime Minister Tony Blair thanked Iranian Foreign Minister Kamal Kharrazi Thursday for Iran`s continuing cooperation with regard to Iraq. Speaking at a joint press conference with Kharrazi following his talks with Blair, British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw said that "progress" was also made over the agreement on Iran`s nuclear programme.

The Iranian foreign minister stopped over in London to met the British prime minister and hold discussions with Straw as part of his tour of European capitals, that started in Rome on Monday. He has since been to Brussels, Dublin and Paris. He said that he held "very good discussions on difficult issues," including the situation in Iraq and the Palestinian issue.

Other bilateral issues were also raised. Straw said that he thanked Kharrazi for the "cooperation and continuing cooperation we receive in respect of Iraq." The British government was "grateful for the cooperation and constructive role played by Iran's mullahs," he said.

I'm going to hope that he's just being diplomatic.
