Bush: U.S. 'making pretty good progress' on Iran
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush said Friday the United States does not want to take any action inside Iran's borders, and he believes the U.S. conflict with Iran can be resolved diplomatically.

"In fact, we're making pretty good progress on that front," he said. "I believe we can succeed."

Bush did not detail what that progress consists of. He noted that other nations are working with the United States in trying to resolve the conflict over Iran's nuclear ambitions diplomatically, but those nations have long been part of that U.S. effort.

Last month, the U.N. Security Council passed a resolution threatening sanctions against Iran. Tehran responded by saying it would not heed the resolution and would carry on with its nuclear activities, which Tehran says are for peaceful purposes.
