President George W Bush is committed to a diplomatic approach to Iran, UK Foreign Secretary Jack Straw has said after talks in the US.
Speculation the US is planning to attack Iran has grown amid concerns the Iranians are building nuclear weapons.

But speaking after talks with Condoleezza Rice - Mr Bush's nominee as new US secretary of state - Mr Straw sought to allay fears of an attack.

He said the issue of the "military option" in Iran had not been raised.

Attacking Iran would be such a huge mistake it defies imagination. in Iraq, we had a brutal dictator. In Iran we have people wanting more freedom, but otherwise not in the same state as the Iraqi people were. Also, you have 2 times the population and land mass. Where are we going to get the troops? Plus if we fully commit, then I can see Kim in North Korea pouring across the border in waves as we would have nothing to send against him.
