A Very Rare Joint Appearance of US and Iran!!

This is a video of the very rare event at Davos Switzerland during the World Economic Forum. At this panel Manouchehr Mottaki, Iranian Foreign Minister, and Zalmai Khalilzad, the US representative to UN, have joined in a panel about Iran and the region. Unfortunately most of the Iranian party's talk is in Persian and video does not carry the translation that was apparently available through different chanel. But mostly the exchanges are very civil and cordial. The Iranian party has restrained from any rhetoric and harsh comment. At the end (60:00 minute) the Iranian FM switches to English.

Unfortunately NYT and LA Times are reporting that Mr. Zalmai Khalilzad is being repremanded for his participation at this level.
