Motorists with their headlights on drive along a main highway as bad weather engulfs the Iranian capital Tehran on June 6, 2014The United States and Iran have denied plans for any military coordination in the fight against Islamic State militants operating in Iraq and Syria. “We are not going to coordinate military action or share intelligence with Iran and have no plans to do so,” State Department deputy spokeswoman Marie Harf said Friday, reacting to reports that Tehran had approved such an arrangement. Harf said that Washington was “open to engaging” with Iran as it had in the past on select issues, notably on Afghanistan in late 2001, when the two sides worked to put Hamid Karzai into power after the fall of the Taliban. The BBC reported, citing unnamed sources in Tehran, that Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had approved cooperation with the US in the fight against the Islamic State.
