USA*ENGAGE Responds to Iranian President's Comments

Thursday, 8 January 1998

"It is important that the United States and Iran seek every opportunity to overcome their longstanding differences. Therefore, we welcome the Administrationís response to President Khatamiís call for dialogue by proposing direct talks between the two governments. We hope that this represents a genuine opportunity to bridge the differences between our two countries and address the serious and longstanding concerns that are shared by all Americans."

USA*ENGAGE is a coalition of 657 small and large businesses, agriculture groups and trade associations working to seek alternatives to the proliferation of unilateral U.S. foreign policy sanctions and to promote the benefits of U.S. engagement abroad.
