US President Barack Obama has secretly written to Iran's supreme leader to discuss possible cooperation in the fight against Islamic State militants providing there is a nuclear deal.

Obama sent the letter last month to Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and described what he called a "shared fight" against the Sunni militant Islamic State group, citing "people briefed on the correspondence."

Iran, a Shiite Muslim state, and the United States have not had diplomatic ties since the 1979 storming of the American embassy in Tehran and the 444-day hostage crisis.
