Not expecting new Iran talks Monday: US
A US official said a second round of rare talks between Iran and the United States was not expected in Baghdad on Monday after an Iranian newspaper reported the dialogue on Iraqi security was about to resume.

Teheran and Washington held a first round of direct talks on Iraq's stability in Baghdad on May 28. Iranian and Iraqi officials had said that a second round of talks between the two would take place soon, without specifying a date.

"After a series of ups and downs, Iran and America's ambassadors will hold talks about Iraq on Monday in Baghdad," Iran's Hamshahri newspaper said on Sunday, quoting an unidentified official.

However, a US embassy spokesman in Baghdad said the embassy was not expecting a second round on Monday, adding that any further information would come from Washington.
