I’m always highly skeptical of the what I read in the British press, especially when it has to do with the US. But the Guardian’s fairly reliable and they’re reporting that US is planning to announce in the next month that we’ll be opening a diplomatic interests section in Iran. That means basically a de facto diplomatic outpost without having formal diplomatic relations. I believe we already have one in Havana.
Nonetheless this would be a further sign of a dramatic shift in the US stance toward Tehran.
Will be interesting to see if the report bears out. I’m skeptical; but let’s see.
