Time to say goodbye to US domination: Iran official

Washington: Seventy-five percent of Americans oppose Israel conducting a military strike against Iran's nuclear programme, says a survey.

Nearly seven out of 10 favour negotiating with Iran, a position supported by majorities of Republicans (58 percent) and Democrats (79 percent).

Supporting the diplomatic approach, three in four Americans say that the US should primarily act through the UN Security Council rather than by itself in dealing with Iran's nuclear programme.

The University of Maryland and its organs conducted the study involving 727 people. The polling project was directed by Steven Kull, Shibley Telhami and Anwar Sadat, according to a university statement.

If Israel goes ahead with a military strike against Iran's nuclear programme and Iran retaliates - but not against American targets - only 25 percent favour the US providing military forces should Israel request them. Another 14 percent favour the US providing diplomatic support only.

The most popular position is for the US to take a neutral stance, which is supported by 49 percent of the respondents.
