Back at His Desk Ahmadinejad Pens a Letter to President Sarkozy

Iranian President Mahmoud is back writing again. After his letters to President Bush and Pope Benedict XVI, Ahmadinejad sent a warning letter to French President Nicolas Sarkozy.
Mehr News reported:

TEHRAN, Nov. 17 (MNA) — Top presidential advisor Mojtaba Samareh-Hashemi on Saturday confirmed that President Mahmud Ahmadinejad had sent a letter to his French counterpart Nicolas Sarkozy.

“In his letter, Ahmadinejad touches on the history of Iran-France relations as well as the future prospect of the ties between the two countries,” Samareh-Hashemi told reporters in Mehrabad International Airport on the sidelines of a ceremony to see off president who was leaving for Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

Samareh-Hashemi also stressed that what the French newspaper Le Monde reported on the letter was mostly distorted.

Le Monde reported that Ahmadinejad called French President Nicolas Sarkozy “young and inexperienced” in an acrimonious and threatening letter.

…Ahmadinejad also said that a French drive for European sanctions targeting Tehran is bound to fail because neither Germany nor Italy will follow France’s lead, Le Monde reported.

AFP reported that Mahmoud’s letter contained veiled threats against France.
