    LONDON (Reuters) - The United States will announce in the next month that it plans to establish a diplomatic presence in Tehran for the first time in 30 years, a British newspaper said on Thursday.
    In a front-page report, the Guardian said Washington would open a U.S. interests section in the Iranian capital, halfway towards opening an embassy.

    The unsourced report by the newspaper's Washington correspondent said: "The Guardian has learned that an announcement will be made in the next month to establish a U.S. interests section in Tehran, a halfway house to setting up a full embassy.

    "The move will see US diplomats stationed in the country."

    Senior U.S. diplomat William Burns said in testimony to Congress last week the United States was looking to opening up an interest section in Tehran but had not made a decision yet.......con.

    It should be an under-ground bunker.

    Good news. Maybe the administration is preparing for an Obama victory by following his lead and making contact with Iranians without preconditions.

    You don't do anything with a like Iran, without preconditions. Well, except for maybe lobbing a nuke their way without notice. :D Teasing people.

    Does anyone know what it looks like in Iran, with respect to the USA? Very hospitible if you ask me.
