Iraq-Iran Talks Adjourn in Doubt

From Reuters

Persian Gulf peace talks adjourned today without substantive progress, and their future status was cast into doubt by a tough Iraqi declaration.

U.N. mediator Jan Eliasson said that he has invited the foreign ministers of Iraq and Iran to New York for talks with Secretary General Javier Perez de Cuellar on Sept. 22 and that both sides have accepted the invitation. But a subsequent statement by Iraq, which has resisted moving the negotiations to New York, said the delegation will only go if a definite date is fixed for a resumption of the Geneva talks.
