Thanks to NRO for pointing to this article in the Tehran Times (yes, that Tehran).
It says that Iran would be willing to engage in bilateral talks with the US if the US changed its policy toward Iran. To quote the lead paragraph:
Tehran would be ready to hold talks with Washington on the basis of “mutual understanding” providing the White House changes its hostile policy towards Iran, said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in an interview with the Japanese English Channel, NHK.
That's hilarious! Obama is famously willing to negotiate with Iran "without preconditions" (see the third paragraph under "Iran") but Iran insists on preconditions. How weak does that make Obama look?
