No U.S.-Iran military coordination against Islamic State: Rice

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. national security adviser Susan Rice said on Friday the United States is not engaged in military coordination with Iran in countering Islamic State forces in the Middle East.

Rice, at a White House briefing, responded to a report that President Barack Obama had written a letter to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei about Islamic State by saying, "We are in no way engaged in any coordination - military coordination - with Iran on countering ISIL."
