Syria and the US to talk

Syria and the US are planning to open talks about Iraq.

Bush stunned the world by rejecting his own top level commission's recommendation that he talk to Syria. He said the US would not take the initiative - but later said he would be willing to talk if Iraq set something up.

And that's exactly what they have done.

The meeting will take place in March. It was expected to include only Iraq's neighbours - but now the US has been invited, and has accepted the invitation. But Iraq's Foreign Minister said it took "tough negotiations" even to get them to come.
