Khamenei of Iran renews the ban on talks with the United States
DUBAI: Iran will maintain its ban on talks with the United States, the supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei he said on Sunday, describing the two countries as relentless enemies a day before the 40th anniversary of the US embassy taking over Tehran .
One way to block the political infiltration of the United States is to prohibit any conversation with the United States. It means that Iran will not give in to pressure from the United States. Those who believe that negotiations with the enemy will solve our problems are 100% wrong, said Khamenei, who is Iran's top leader. authority, was cited by state television as saying.
Relations between the two enemies have reached a crisis over the past year after the US president. UU. Donald Trump abandoned a 2015 nuclear pact between Iran and world powers under which Tehran accepted curbs to its nuclear programme in return for lifting sanctions.
Washington has once again imposed sanctions aimed at stopping all Iranian oil exports, saying it seeks to force Iran to negotiate to reach a broader agreement. Khamenei has banned Iranian officials from holding such talks unless the United States returns to the nuclear agreement and lifts all sanctions.
The anniversary of the seizure of the United States embassy shortly after the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran is marked in Iran with demonstrations of crowds singing Death to America throughout the country.
The capture of the embassy consolidated the hostility between the two countries, which has remained a central fact in the geopolitics of the Middle East and an important part of Iran's national ideology. Iran, which accused the United States of supporting brutal policies of its overthrown Shah, held 52 Americans for 444 days at the embassy, which he called Den of Spies.
The United States has not changed for decades ... it continues the same aggressive and cruel behavior and the same international dictatorship, Khamenei said.
The United States has always had hostility towards Iran.
