Only CBS assigned a correspondent to the announcement by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that she would open talks with Iran and Syria. She told a Senate panel that she planned to attend the so-called Neighbors Summit convened in Baghdad by the Iraqi government to discuss regional security with eight next door states.

The other two networks mentioned the summit only in passing.
