Kerry says US may share information with Iran over Iraq, not cooperate

WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry said the United States is interested in communicating with Iran to share information about the Sunni insurgency spreading across Iraq, but Washington is not seeking to work together with Tehran to address the crisis.

 

"We are interested in communicating with Iran. That the Iranians know what we're thinking, that we know what they're thinking and there
is a sharing of information so people aren't making mistakes," Kerry said in an interview on NBC News on Thursday.

 

Asked if the United States was considering working hand-in-hand with Shi'ite-led Iran, Kerry said: "No. We're not sitting around contemplating how we're going to do that or if we're going to do that. That's not on the table," Kerry added. (Reuters)
