excerpts from: Britain calls for united front to deal with Iran
by Souhail Karam, Reuters, 8 April 2009
“I know that many countries in the region are concerned not just about the dangers of Iran’s nuclear program but also (about) Iranian activities in the region that cause instability in many countries of the Middle East. I think it’s very important that there is a united front between the countries of Europe, America, Russia and China and countries of the Gulf in addressing the range of issues that are posed by the Iranian regime.” [UK Foreign Minister David Miliband, Riyadh, 8 April 2009]
Britain was among six powers which said Wednesday they would invite Iran for talks to seek a diplomatic solution to the long-running dispute over its nuclear program.
