Should America Have a Diplomatic Presence in Iran?

Iran's foreign minister has praised the US's decision to send a diplomat to today's multilateral talks on Iran's nuclear program. Meanwhile, the Bush Administration is apparently considering a diplomatic presence in Iran, the first since the 1979 hostage crisis in which the American Embassy in Tehran was occupied for over a year.

According to an anonymous White House official, the "interests section" would not be a full embassy. Instead diplomats would issue visas to Iranians wanting to visit America. President Bush has not yet approved the plan. Nonetheless, connecting ordinary Iranians and Americans could do much to reduce tensions between the two countries. Do you agree?
