Seems Obama might visit Iran -- country of birth of his closest advisor, Valerie Jarrett -- sometime soon.

The Kuwaiti news outlet Al-Jarida has learned from a U.S. diplomat that Obama is seeking to arrange a trip to Iran next year.

"The source said that the desire to visit is shared, and that Tehran and Washington are waiting for the conclusion of the arrangements prior to Iranian President Hassan Rohani issuing an official invitation to his American counterpart to visit Tehran.

"He pointed out that the most important detail that is outstanding regarding the meeting is the question of a meeting with Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei [the one who holds the real power in Iran] and the possibility of not holding the meeting.

"The source said that Obama was waiting for the invitation to devote his new administration's policy in the region based on the principle of non-military involvement and balance. He wants to be the first U.S. president to visit Iran since the Khomeini revolution in order to show that he is an advocate of peace and dialogue even with those who chant death to America."

The article was originally published in Arabic.

The White House is denying the Al-Jarida report.

Aside:

Not long after the Geneva agreement was signed, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tweeted the following:

"Enrichment, which is part of our rights, will continue. It continues today and will continue tomorrow." November 26, 2013.

After his return from Geneva, Iran Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif said,"Enrichment is an inseparable part of the nuclear program. None of the nuclear facilities will be shut down." He also said that, "all of our confidence-building actions and commitments are reversible, and we can undo them in a matter of a few weeks."
