El-Baradei on Rouhani message to Bush

TEHRAN, Oct. 14 (MNA) – Former IAEA head has disclosed the content of Rouhani’s message to George W. Bush.

Mehr News quoted Dr. El-Baradei’s account of this in his book.  Mohamed El-Baradei wrote in his book that “In September 2004, when I went to Washington for a meeting with President George Bush, I carried a written message from Hassan Rouhani, on behalf of the Iranian regime, saying that Iran was ready to enter into dialogue with the US on all issues, including both Iran's nuclear program and broad matters of regional security.”

“The message was on a single sheet of paper, without a letterhead or signature," and he handed the note to President Bush explaining its origin. Bush responded "I'd like to talk leader to leader, but I am not sure that Iran is ready to engage.”
