The U.S. refusal to negotiate with Iran has only increased tension between the two countries, Powell told university students in Kiev, Ukraine. ''The disagreement that I've had with my government over Iran is that we should talk to Iranians, but they've chosen a different path, President Bush, Ms. Rice, not including me,'' Russia Today quoted him as saying."
