    Clinton: Iranian regime must take concrete steps

    stanbul (AP)- U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton said Thursday that Iran must be ready to take concrete action when it discusses its nuclear program with world powers in Moscow later this month.
    Clinton said one of the main concerns is Iran's 20 percent enriched uranium, which the West and others say is close to being weapons-grade material, and that the goal of the June 18-19 talks is to begin the work necessary for a diplomatic solution.

    Previous talks have yielded few tangible results. Iran insists it has no intention of making nuclear arms and that its reactors are only for medical and energy purposes.
    "We want them to come prepared to take concrete steps," Clinton said of Iran at a news conference.
    She was in Turkey for a counterterrorism forum and also held discussions with Western and Arab allies on efforts to pressure Syrian President Bashar Assad to stop his crackdown on a national uprising and leave power.
