Tehran, June 14, IRNA – President Hassan Rouhani said Saturday that he has met no American priest or monk who had brought him a message from US President Barack Obama.
ˈI have met no priest or monk with a message. But to make it clear for all, I should say, if a message is to be exchanged between me and Mr. Obama, it will not be complicated. He will write a letter and I will do the same,ˈ said the President.
He said in the first days of his victory as Iranˈs seventh president in 2013, President Obama had sent him a letter, adding, ˈI replied and then I sent him a message that he answered me.ˈ
He reiterated that the two had no problem in exchanging letters. ˈThere are many easy official and non-official ways to do that. Presently, Iranian negotiators are in talks with the officials of US Department of State,ˈ said the President.
ˈI neither received by nor sent a message to a monk or whoever you meant,ˈ the President noted.
