|Aide denies Rouhani wrote op-ed for German paper||
TEHRAN – A presidential aide has denied that Iranian President Hassan Rouhani wrote an editorial for a German newspaper in which he called to strengthen ties with the West.
On Monday, Reuters reported that Rouhani had written an op-ed for the German Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper in which he was quoted as writing, “We want to rebuild and improve our relations to European and North American countries on a basis of mutual respect.”
“Dr. Rouhani has not submitted any note to the German publication and attributing this piece to the president of the Islamic Republic of Iran is a lie,” Mohammad Reza Sadeq, Rouhani’s media advisor, told the Fars News Agency on Tuesday.
