In an apparent volte-face, Obama has revealed that the US has decided to resolve the so-called Iranian nuclear dispute by means of diplomacy.
“With respect to Iran, I very much want to see a diplomatic resolution to the problem,” Obama told a White House news conference on Wednesday.
“I will try to make a push in the coming months to see if we can open up a dialogue between Iran and not just us, but the international community, to see if we can get this thing resolved,” he added.
It is not quite clear if President Barack Obama really means well or if he can kindle any new hopes that Washington may eventually shelve its language of coercion and policy of sanctions against Iran.
In the heart of the matter however lies a pit of disbelief on the part of Iran as the nation has rarely seen in the past any gesture of goodwill on the side of Washington which has practically kept adhering to its inhumane sanctions and literature of force.
