Rice says US has heard positive statements from Iran


(Gold9472: As I said before, I wonder if the Iran dispute was made to look worse than it was, so the "Heroic" Bush Administration could "save the day", and gain support to invade countries like Venezuela with their "Leftist" leader Hugo Chavez.)

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States has heard some positive statements from Tehran over an offer from major powers aimed at curbing Iran's nuclear program, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Friday.

Rice, speaking to reporters after talks with Italian Foreign Minister Massimo D'Alema, added that the United States is still expecting a clear answer on the proposal, and hopes Iran will take what she called the right path.
