Envoy: US has no plans for Iraq talks with Iran

The U.S. ambassador to Iraq says the United States has no imminent plans to resume talks with Iran about Iraq.
Ambassador Christopher Hill says Iran is still trying to exert a "malevolent influence" over its neighboring country but he's hopeful Iraqis aren't responding.
The U.S. military accuses Iran of backing Shiite militias in Iraq with training and weapons. Tehran denies the allegations.
The United States has held limited meetings with the Iranians to discuss Iraq's security. But Hill says it's too soon to discuss resuming those because of the political turmoil in Iran.
He told The Associated Press Monday that Iran and Iraq need a good relationship but "the U.S. has no interest in negotiating with Iran over the future of Iraq."
