Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani said yesterday that Russian President Putin delivered a “special message” on nuclear issue to Iran’s leader Ayatollah Khamenei during their meeting on Tuesday (IRNA, 17 October).
“We will ponder your words and proposal,” Khamenei was quoted by Iran’s official news agency as responding.
Today, Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmedinejad disputed the reports and said Putin did not offer any message or proposal on nuclear standoff (IRNA, 18 October). “Putin did not say a word,” he added.
It seems that disharmony and disorder runs deep and at the highest political echelons of the Islamic Republic.
