Reports about secret talks between Iran and the U.S
Reports about secret talks between Iran and the U.S. were first broadcast by NBC television. The reports said that the U.S. is trying to convince Iran to hand over 3 top Al-Qaeda members. NBC said that several U.S. officials believe that Iran is ready to hand over Al-Qaeda members only in exchange with the members of Mudjahideen-e Khalq. Mojahedin-e khalq, headed by Masoud Rajavi, was fully supported by Saddam Hussein and was allowed to have bases in Iraq and operate from within this country. After the fall of Saddam, MKO lost its main supporter and its bases were bombed by coalition forces, then its forces were forced to give in their arms and weapons and now they're under the control of American forces in Iraq. According to CNN, a senior official in Bush administration has reminded Iran of the importance of handing over Qaeda members but that there are no talks in between. According to NY Times, American and Middle East officials have said that Iran wants to exchange MKO members with Al-Qaeda members. A U.S. official told NY Times that the U.S. has recently asked Iran, through a third country, to hand over Qaeda members but there were no positive answers or issues of exchange. These officials have also revealed that the U.S. has failed in getting the members of Al-Qaeda from Iran. A U.S. official said that the U.S. had tried to get terrorist suspects through the embassy of Swiss in Tehran, but it has failed.
