Recently revealed information shows that President Barack Obama sent a letter to the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei of Iran. The letter was sent directly to Khamenei by Obama weeks prior to the Iranian Presidential election, which ended in controversy.
In the written document, President Obama called for talks between Iran and the United States to commence.
While the Ayatollah has not sent Obama a response as of yet, reports suggest that Khamenei is open to negotiations after the aforementioned election had come to an end.
The Obama Administration has openly stated that they have been working for a long time now to open up talks with Iran.
At a speech during a trip to Tehran University, the Ayatollah made reference to the letter, but did not go into detail about it.
There was one letter prepared by the nation of Iran. However, that letter was to a congratulations letter that was expected from President Obama to Iranian President Ahmadinejad.
Despite the controversy over the election in Iran, many Iranians are seeing the current situation over who should be president as nothing more than something that is delaying the talks between the United States and Iran.
The United States outreach towards Iran has grown since Obama’s coming into power. President Obama is leading the charge to making the international community more peaceful and to get rid of the violence in Iran. With cooperation by the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Iranian President Ahmadinejad, peace can come to the international community and a positive relationship can be made between Iran and the United States of America.
