China Daily:

TEHRAN - Iran's Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast confirmed on Sunday that Iran has received a letter from the United States over Strait of Hormuz, the official IRNA news agency reported.

Mehmanparast said that the US administration forwarded the letter to Iran through three channels. It delivered a copy of the letter to Iran via Iraqi President Jalal Talabani, and the US ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, delivered another copy to the Iranian representative to the United Nations, Mohammad Khazaei, and the third copy was delivered to Iran by Swiss Ambassador to Tehran Livia Leu Agosti, said IRNA.

"The Islamic republic is studying the letter and will respond to it if it is necessary," Mehmanparast said.

Mehmanparast did not elaborate on the content of the US letter but, on Friday, the New York Times reported that the US had used a secret channel to send a letter to Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei over the country's threats of closing the strategic passage of Strait of Hormuz. The report said that in the letter US warned that closing the Strait would be crossing a "red line" and it would provoke a response.
