Obama acknowledges US history with Iran

CAIRO (AP) -- President Barack Obama says the United States will proceed with courage, rectitude and resolve when dealing with Iran.

Obama acknowledges the United States' role in overthrowing the democratically elected Iranian government during the last century. Obama says it's going to be difficult to overcome decades of mistrust.

Obama is in Cairo delivering a speech to the Muslim world and says he has made clear to Iran's leaders that he wants to move forward and build a future together.

Obama says the United States is willing to move forward with mutual respect and without preconditions. Obama says that approach would prevent a nuclear arms race in the region.

Obama says no single nation should decide which countries have nuclear weapons.
