WASHINGTON, June 16 The United States and Iran
discussed Iraq briefly on Monday, a senior U.S. official
confirmed, saying such talks would not include military
coordination and would not make "strategic determinations" over
the heads of Iraqis.
"The issue did come up briefly with Iran on the margins of
the P5+1 in Vienna today, separate from our trilateral meeting,"
the senior State Department official said, referring to talks
between Iran and six major powers about Iran's nuclear program.
U.S., Iranian and European Union officials held three-way talks
on Monday but Iraq did not come up there, the official said.
