Iranians Reject Kerry’s Request To Visit

We almost missed this latest update on Mr. Obama’s brilliant diplomatic forays, via the Fars News Agency:

Lawmakers Reject John Kerry’s Request for Visiting Iran

January 3, 2010

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian legislators on Sunday rejected a request filed by Head of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee John Kerry for paying a visit to Iran.

"Members of the Iranian parliament’s Foreign Relations Committee (a subcommittee of the parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission) voiced opposition to the request after studying the issue," Head of the Committee Hassan Ebrahimi told FNA.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast last week confirmed reports that John Kerry has filed a request for visiting Tehran.

"Since it (the request) is for a parliamentary visit, the issue has been referred to the parliament. The legislative officials are studying the case and they are in charge for providing a response," Mehman-Parast said at a weekly press conference here in Tehran on Tuesday.

Earlier, the US daily Wall Street Journal had reported that the Massachusetts Democrat is considering an emissary trip to Iran.

The United States and Iran broke diplomatic relations in April 1980, after Iranian students seized the United States’ espionage center at its embassy in Tehran. The two countries have had tense relations ever since, but have shown willingness to attend talks to help resolve regional issues, including security in Iraq. Yet, the two countries have avoided talks on bilateral issues for the last thirty years.

Obama White House in March tried to offer an olive branch to Iran and repair strained ties of nearly three decades. Tehran, meanwhile, said it would only consider the promise after seeing practical changes in the US policies.

Last Tuesday Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani advised Senator Kerry to end the United States’ hostile policies towards the Islamic Republic, particularly regarding the nuclear issue, instead of paying a visit to the country.

And we had been holding out so much hope.

    Well, there sits Lurch…with Ketchup on his face. Again.

    Nobody trusts a turncoat. Not even the murdering psycho Islamic muslim killers who control Iran.

    I think we should send Kerry anyway….parachute him into the middle of Tehran with a sign on his back that says Mohammed Cruises for Christians.

    Obama’s administration is dumb & deaf, to Iran’s “no talk” policy. Even America knows it’s a waste of breath to talk to Obama’s dictatorship. Obama & Pelosi the worst of the dictators; their habitual lying fit’s the description of
    abominations of the Lord. They flat out giggle & laugh as they lie. They’ve crossed the line, and are no better than Iran’s AhMadMan.
