Obama considers talks with Iran to stabilize Iraqi government

On Monday, an American diplomat met with an Iranian diplomat to consider working together to stabilize the Iraqi government and counter ISIS. Secretary of State John Kerry indicated that the U.S. would be open to collaborating with Iran to discuss the threat posed by Sunni militants in the region, even as the two countries enter their second day of U.N. Security Council talks aimed at curbing Iran's nuclear program.
