US treads carefully over Iran poll

Text size Aa Aa

The United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has adopted a softly-softly approach to the dispute over the validity of the Iranian election result.

Clinton made no mention of opposition claims that the contest was a charade when giving her reaction on a visit to Canada. “We obviously hope that the outcome reflects the genuine will and desire of the Iranian people,” said Clinton. The Obama administration wants to open up dialogue with Iran and analysts say if it backs the opposition protests there will be little hope of opening up dialogue with Ahmadinejad.
