Kerry Floats Plan to Visit Tehran - WSJ.com

Read Here: Kerry Floats Plan to Visit Tehran - WSJ.com:

"Sen. John Kerry has suggested becoming the first high-level U.S. emissary to
make a public visit to Tehran since the 1979 Islamic revolution, a move White
House officials say they won't oppose...The funeral procession for Grand
Ayatollah Hossein Ali Montazeri drew thousands to the holy city of Qom on
Monday.The offer comes as mass protests against Iran's regime are resurfacing and a U.S.-imposed deadline nears to broach international sanctions against Iran. ...'This sounds like the kind of travel a chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee would -- and should --
undertake,' said a White House official, adding it would be at Sen. Kerry's own
behest"
