US favours diplomacy in Iran nuclear row: Rice


JERUSALEM (AFP) — US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Sunday that the US administration was giving priority to solving its row with Iran over its nuclear programme through diplomatic channels.

“We have made very clear, and the president has made very clear that, while taking no option off the table, the US policy is that this can work diplomatically,” Rice said during a visit to Israel.

“And that is where we have been focused and that is where all our energies are, I emphasise all our energies, because we have just, through Javier Solana, proposed a package to the Iranians,” Rice said. (via AFP: US favours diplomacy in Iran nuclear row: Rice)
