Now it appears the "P5 plus 1" multilateral diplomatic efforts with Iran will pay dividends. Iran's recently elected moderate president, Hassan Rouhani, is seeking direct talks with the United States, the first direct talks between the two countries in over 30 years. Mr. Rouhani campaigned on having friendlier ties with the West. Gone are the vitriolic statements of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. With Mr. Rouhani, the U.S. may have a true potential partner for peace.
