Iran's UN mission has dismissed the vision laid out by a US official for the future of Tehran-Washington relations, saying that history has shown that the United States does not pursue rapprochement with the Islamic Republic with good intentions. 
In a letter to the New York Times published on April 11, Alireza Miryousefi, counselor and head of the Press Office at Iran's mission to the United Nations, responded to recent comments by Brian Hook, the US special representative for Iran and a senior advisor to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. 
On April 8, Hook claimed in an op-ed for the same newspaper that the Islamic Republic has experienced "40 years of failure and mismanagement" and said it should abandon "the policies that have kept the people of Iran and the United States apart since 1979".
