Obama says he and Iran's Rowhani swapped letters

Barack Obama says he and Iran's new President Hassan Rowhani have exchanged letters, and warned his reluctance to strike Syria had no bearing on US threats of force to thwart an Iranian nuclear bomb.

The US president, in an interview aired on ABC News on Sunday, confirmed the outreach to Rowhani for the first time, and said he believed the Syria chemical arms drama showed that diplomacy could work if backed by threats of military action.
