This article in The Age says that the Presidents of Iran and the US have spoken on the telephone in person for the first time since 1979. Countries don't have to be "friends". But they ought to try not to be enemies. Of course, grumps on both sides will try to sabotage any rapprochement, but it makes so much sense for the two sides to make peace.
A step forward, at last.
