IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, May 9, IRNA
The letter to US President George Bush carries the Iranian nation's views and comments on international issues as well as suggestions for resolving the many problems facing humanity, said President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad here Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters at Tehran Mehrabad International Airport before his departure for Indonesia to attend a meeting of the D-8 (Group of 8 developing Muslim states), the president said that Islamic courtesy prevented him from revealing its contents.

"We will wait to see what would be the reaction of the other side and then we will make the decision," Ahmadinejad said.

"Fortunately, we have no problem when it comes to making decisions," Ahamdinejad added.

The Iranian president on Monday sent a letter to his US counterpart but would not reveal its contents.

Later in the day, government spokesman Gholam-Hossein Elham said at a news conference in Tehran that President Ahmadinejad, in his letter, talked of international developments and crises, analyzed the global situation and offered new ways to resolve international disputes.

The letter was submitted to President Bush via the Swiss embassy in Tehran which takes charge of the US' interests section in Iran.
