Iran and the U.S. headed for talks? According to Iranian media reports, the top security adviser to Iran’s supreme leader said U.S. officials approached him during a trip to Afghanistan about talks with Tehran. Meanwhile, U.S. President Donald Trump told reporters that Iran is feeling the heat of sanctions and wants to talk, a claim Iranian officials have denied. It’s hard to confirm either report, but that they came out around the same time suggests there may be growing interest in talks. Both countries have also been in touch with Indian and Taliban officials recently. Tomorrow, the U.S. will reportedly hold talks with the Afghan Taliban, which also held negotiations with Tehran late last month. Trump spoke to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi by phone yesterday, just one day before Iran’s foreign minister arrived in India to attend a business forum.
