Brazil's Lula: 'Who said Iran is a matter for US?'

Brazilian President hints US does not 'know how to do politics without having an enemy'.

BRASILIA - Brazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva hit out at the United States Thursday, challenging its muscular approach on Iran that sidelined diplomatic efforts he made this week to resolve the showdown.

Newspaper columnists "say that it was none of Brazil's business to be an intermediary with Iran. But who said it was a matter for the United States?" he asked after returning from an overseas tour that included Tehran.

"The blunt truth is, Iran is being presented as if were the devil, that it doesn't want to sit down" to negotiate.

To the contrary, said Lula, "Iran decided to sit down at the negotiating table. It wants to see if the others are going to go along with what (it) has done."

"There are people who don't know how to do politics without having an enemy," said Lula, in reference to the US administration.
