Rice says Iran should see North Korea as example

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said on Tuesday that a deal with North Korea over its nuclear program should serve as a message to Iran that international diplomacy could achieve results.

“Why should it not be seen as a message to Iran that the international community is able to bring together its resources, particularly when regionally affected states work together and that the strong diplomacy … has finally achieved results?” Rice told a news conference. Iran is at loggerheads with the United States and other Western nations over its nuclear program.
