IRIB: "Letter, a message from all Iranians"

From Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting:
Majlis Speaker Gholam-Ali Haddad-Adel here Wednesday said that President Ahmadinejad's letter to US President George W Bush conveyed a message from the Iranian nation.

Addressing an open session of Majlis, he said the letter also conveyed a message from all world nations and Muslims . . .

Haddad-Adel further said that the letter should not be taken as the start of a healing process of broken relations between the two countries.

Certain domestic and foreign circles have commented that by sending the letter the Iranian president had decided to end the 27-year break in relations between the two states, he pointed out, and stressed that the interpretation is not correct.

It was Washington that cut off ties with Iran, the speaker said, adding that the Islamic Republic of Iran has not found any reason to mend relations in the past 27 years.

The letter thoroughly detailed Iran's reasons for not having any interest in reestablishing ties with the US, he added.

He said it talks about the great Muslim awakening and the fact that Muslim defiance of US and Western pressure has grown even stronger as shown in their demand for equal treatment in the international arena.
