Iran ready with higher level talks with U.S. over Iraq
Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said on Wednesday that his country was ready to consider further talks with the United States over Iraq's security at a higher level, the official IRNA news agency reported.

"The talks with the United States regarding Iraq's security at the level of deputy foreign minister can be examined," Mottaki was quoted as saying to reporters after a cabinet meeting. "The issue can be considered if a formal request is received from the U.S. side," he added.

The minister made the remarks just one day after the U.S. and Iranian ambassadors to Iraq met in Baghdad and decided to set up a joint committee to "coordinate and lobby on the establishment of stability and security" there.
