BELGRADE, Serbia Iran says it is weighing a U.S. invitation to a high-level conference on Afghanistan.

Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki tells Serbian state TV that, Im not saying that we will attend, but that we are considering whether to attend.

Mottaki said during a visit to Belgrade on Friday that Iran will announce its decision during a visit by Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini to Tehran this month.

Mottaki says: Our strategy is the return of peace and stability in Afghanistan. Mottaki also says Washington is to blame for the regions deteriorating security.

International efforts in Afghanistan have had limited contributions from Iran in recent years. President Barack Obama has expressed interest in a broad warming of bilateral relations.
