Talking to Iran about Iraq

James Dobbins, the Bush administration's first envoy for Afghanistan after Sept. 11., reflects on his experiences with Iranian officlas and gives advice on how to talk to Iran about Iraq. He argues in The Washington Post :
Yet Washington and Tehran still have largely coincident objectives in Iraq, as they did in Afghanistan almost six years ago. Neither wants Iraq to disintegrate. Both want the government of Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to succeed. Indeed, Iran may be the only one of Iraq's neighbors to share that interest with the United States.
