The United States should not talk to Iranian regime about jointly helping the Iraqi government fend off insurgents who have been overrunning large swaths of that country, House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday.

“Absolutely not,” Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters. “I can just imagine what our friends in the region, our allies, would be thinking by reaching out to Iran at a time when they continue to pay for terrorism and foster terrorism” in the region.

According to Associated Press, Boehner made his remarks hours before he and other congressional leaders were scheduled to get a White House briefing from President Barack Obama on the situation in Iraq.

Boehner said he was hoping Obama would describe “a strategy that would guarantee some success for keeping Iraq free and propping up the democracy that we fought so hard to get there.” He declined to say specifically what he would favor doing.
