Khamenei Closes every Negotiation with US

TEHRAN – Iranian President Hassan Rouhani “opened” to possible talks on condition that the United States cancels all sanctions against the Islamic Republic, Asia news reported Wednesday. The possible turning point in relations between the two countries was immediately blocked by the Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who denied any possible negotiations with US.
In recent days, Donald Trump said he was “hopeful” about the possibility that Iran could sit at the table of negotiation, to reach a new “agreement”. “I really believe – said the US president- that Iran wants to make an agreement … and I believe this is a possibility that can be realized”.
The escalation of tension between US and Iran is of major concern and fear among the international community. The devaluation of the Iranian currency and the growing difficulties of its economy is the result of the escalation in tension triggered by Trump’s decision to pull out of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) agreed by his predecessor, Barack Obama.
On Tuesday in response, albeit indirectly, to Trump’s words his Iranian counterpart Rouhani, spoke positively. He stressed that “the road is not closed” if indeed Washington wants to negotiate and, in the event of a positive attitude from the US, Tehran is ready to re-enter the nuclear agreement reached with the world powers.
The Iranian president spoke at a government meeting and did not mention the US by name. He referred to America stating that “The road is not closed for them, whenever they put aside their cruel sanctions and return to the negotiation table that they left”.
A few hours later the note of the Ayatollah Khamenei arrived, guiding the armed forces and having the last word in all the main religious, political and social questions of the country both at the level of religious and governmental establishment.
“We have also said this in the past – states a note published on its website – that we will not negotiate with US, because the negotiations do not bring benefits and cause damage”. He added that the Islamic Republic has no problem dealing with Europeans and other nations, but “the founding values of the revolution” and “military capabilities” will never be called into question, He said.
