EPISTOLARY DIPLOMACY. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad writes more letters:

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad told German Chancellor Angela Merkel that their countries had been subjected to tyranny from World War II victors and that they should cooperate to end the imposed world order. Ahmadinejad made the remarks in a letter to Merkel in July. A copy of it, the details of which were not made public at the time, was obtained from a diplomat who asked not to be identified. …

“I have no intention of arguing about the Holocaust,” Ahmadinejad wrote. “But ? some victorious countries of World War II intended to create an alibi on the basis of which they could continue keeping the defeated nations of World War II indebted to them,” the English version of the letter says. …

“Together we must end the present abnormalities in international relations, the type of order and relations that are based on the impositions of the victors of the World War II on the defeated nations,” he wrote.

According to Reuters, “Merkel rejected the letter at the time as ‘totally unacceptable to Germany’ and said it did not deserve a reply.”
