Afkham insisted that the Wall Street Journal orchestrated a non professional media campaign.
She added there have been a history of correspondence from US to Iran that some of them have been responded. However, there has not been any new letter.
On Satuarday, WSJ reported that Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, “has responded to overtures from President Barack Obama seeking better relations by sending secret communications of his own to the White House”.
WSJ added that Ayatollah khamenei “wrote to Mr. Obama in recent weeks in response to an October presidential letter that raised the possibility of U.S.-Iranian cooperation in fighting Islamic State if a nuclear deal is secured, according to an Iranian diplomat. The supreme leader’s response was “respectful” but noncommittal, the diplomat said”.
