the Iranians are serious about restarting talks, then they need to
respond to that letter," Carney told a White House briefing. "That is
the channel by which...the restarting of those talks would take place."Carney
declined to confirm reports from Tehran that Obama had sent Iranian
leaders a new letter about talks, but did not deny a letter had been
sent. Direct communications between the US and Iranian governments,
which have no diplomatic ties, are rare.
