Iran issued an unusual visa to a reporter of the American Jewish Daily Forward last month, the New York Times reported Thursday.

The Iranian foreign ministry said the visa was for 30 days, while the publication said it was only for a week. The reporter, who remained unnamed, has already returned to the US.

“The proposed deal with Iran is of huge importance to American Jews, and we sent a reporter to Iran so that we could provide our readers with an in-depth, objective look at what real Iranians think of the proposed deal, the United States and Israel, ” the Forward’s editor in chief Jane Eisner said in a statement on Thursday, the Times reported.

“It has taken two years of negotiations with the Iranian government to win this opportunity, and we look forward to presenting this objective reporting on our website and in our paper next week, ” Eisner said.

According to the Times, the Forward initially filed for the visa about two years ago with Iran’s Ministry of Culture and Islamic Guidance, which accredits foreign journalists, which finally granted it on July 20.

The Times said that the visa appeared to be part of an effort by Iran to influence the American Jewish community in favor of the nuclear deal between it and the world powers, signed on July 14.
