United States President Barack Obama revealed this week that he has had written correspondence with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani whose recent election had drawn positive reactions from the international community.
Saying President Obama and his foreign policy team are "captive of influential lobbies", the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham protested against "repetition of war rhetoric" by President Obama when he was explaining his outreach to President Rouhani in an interview with ABC news.
Actually the US seeks a military solution to the Syrian crisis in favor of these "lobbies' interests." Now that the US and Russia have reached an agreement on the dismantling of Syria's chemical weapons, the US "is deprived of any pretext to launch military action against Syria," said Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab-African Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.
While Iran is being involved, along with Russia, in protecting the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, it has also told the Obama administration and its western allies that "Iran cannot tolerate prolongation of nuclear talks," in part as a result of President Obama's "threats against Syria."
