LONDON (Reuters) - The United States is still willing to 'reach out to Iran but political turmoil there means Tehran is not now in a position to respond, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told the BBC on Thursday. President Barack Obama made diplomatic overtures to Iran before its June 12 election, but Hillary told the BBC: We havent had any response. She added: Weve certainly reached out and made it clear thats what wed be willing to do, even now, despite our absolute condemnation of what theyve done in the election and since, but I dont think they have any capacity to make that kind of decision right now. The re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, in a poll the Opposition denounced as rigged, triggered days of mass street protests in which at least 20 people were killed. The contested vote and the authorities harsh response to the unrest have divided Irans ruling elite.
