Iran ready for talks with Washington, says Khamenei aide

 Iran is ready to discuss its nuclear programme with the United States, the adviser to the Islamic republic's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Monday during a visit to Syria.

"While we do not have any faith in the American government... Iran is ready for talks on its nuclear programme," Ali Akbar Velayati told reporters at a news conference in the Iranian embassy in Damascus.

"Iran has reservations about the composition of the 5+1 group (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) but remains committed to resolving the problem through dialogue," he said.
