Obama says on Iran all options on the table


WASHINGTON, April 21 (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama said on Tuesday he wanted direct diplomacy with long-time foe Iran but without taking other options off the table.

Obama also condemned as "appalling and objectionable" Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s denunciation of Israel as a racist state at a U.N. conference on Monday.
