The Islamic Republic of Iran and Sudan have signed an agreement to bolster bilateral cooperation in the defense sector.
The agreement was inked by the Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar and his Sudanese counterpart Abdel Rahim Mohammed Hussein. The Iranian minister wound up his four-day visit to Khartoum and returned home Saturday.
The two ministers stressed expansion of defense cooperation as an important step in strengthening regional and international peace, stability and security.
President Bush insists the military option against Iran remains on the table, while his top military experts, including Admiral Fallon, urge the White House to choose a diplomatic approach towards Tehran.
In a Thursday White House press briefing, spokeswoman Dana Perino was asked about the Esquire piece and refused to confirm whether Fallon's position is secure until the end of his tenure.
