Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has written a letter to U.S. President George W. Bush, proposing " new solutions" to resolve tensions in the world and differences between them, Iranian government spokesman Gholam Hossein Elham told reporters on Monday.
"President Ahmadinejad has written a letter to George Bush, which was sent via the Swiss Embassy in Tehran which has a U.S. interests section," Elham said.
"In this letter, President Ahmadinejad analyzed the world situation and the roots of the problems. He has proposed new solutions for getting out of international problems and current fragile situation of the world," the spokesman said.
This is the first letter from an Iranian president to his American counterpart in 27 years.
Iran and the United States severed diplomatic relations in 1980, shortly after the Islamic revolution that overthrew former Iranian king in 1979.
Elham did not mention if Ahmadinejad had touched upon Iran's nuclear issue, which the United States and Iran are at loggerheads.
Washington suspects that Iran is trying to make atomic weapons under the cover of peaceful energy development. But Iran strongly denied such accusations, vowing never to give up to pressures.
