TEHRAN (Iran News)- Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined that one of the reasons he has voiced objection to bilateral talks with Washington was blocking the US influence over Iran. “This rational way closes the Americans’ way to infiltrate into Iran again, prevents US influence over Iran, proves Iran’s real […]
“This rational way closes the Americans’ way to infiltrate into Iran again, prevents US influence over Iran, proves Iran’s real awe and might to the world and ruins the other side’s hollow awe before the world,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in Tehran on Sunday on the occasion of Aban (the 8th Iranian month) 13 (November 4) which marks the anniversary of the US embassy takeover in Tehran in 1979 (an event dubbed as ‘the National Day of Fighting Arrogance’).
He noted that the Americans have for years been asking for negotiations with the Iranian officials, saying, “Talks with the Americans will yield no results because certainly, they will not compromise.”
Ayatollah Khamenei said American officials believe that if their Iranian counterparts sit to the negotiation, it would mean that they have been brought to their knees, and added negotiations with the Americans do not decrease pressures and sanctions but they will open way for Washington to officially raise its demands.
He stressed Iran’s military power and its possession of 2,000km-range missiles with the high precision-striking power of one meter, warning that the US wants to disarm the country of such missiles.
Ayatollah Khamenei reminded that the talks between the US and North Korean leaders have failed to reduce sanctions against Pyongyang.
He also pointed to French President Emmanuel Macron’s remarks that the Iranian officials’ meeting with US President Donald Trump can resolve all problems in Iran, and said, “This person is either very simple-minded or a collaborator with the Americans.”
He also referred to his recent remarks that if the US removes all sanctions against Iran, it can participate in talks with the country within the framework of the Group 5+1, and said, “I knew that they would not accept it and it turned out to be so.”
“The US has not changed since November 1964 when its puppet regime exiled our beloved Imam Khomeini. The same aggressive, vicious behavior and the same international dictatorship has continued. Today it has become weaker than in 1964, but it has become more brutal and impudent,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
