TEHRAN (IRNA) -- The United States must change the language and approach it uses towards Iran and launch confident-building measures, said Member of the Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, Javad Jahangir-Zadeh here Monday.

He said these changes ""are the main factors for entering into any talks with the U.S. by Iran or forming any committee.""
He was commenting on a recent agreement between Iran and the U.S. on forming a joint security committee on Iraq.
""The U.S. is pursuing a contradictory approach towards Iran despite the fact that it needs the country and has officially requested to hold talks with Tehran,"" Jahangir-Zadeh said.
He stressed that Washington ""has to change its language and stop raising allegations against Iran such as interfering in Iraq's internal affairs.
""This is not acceptable that on the one hand, U.S. addresses Iran rudely and on the other, expects Tehran help it over security in Iraq,"" the MP argued.
Noting that security in Iraq would surely improve security at Iranian border areas, the MP asked, ""What positive consequences would helping Americans bring for Iran's foreign policy?
