Tehran’s interim Friday Prayers leader, Ayatollah Seyyed Ahmad Khatami said on today’s Friday Prayer that negotiating with the US which is under pressure is not considered negotiation any more but it rather means giving up and surrendering it.
The Senior cleric went on to stress that US President Donald Trump won’t live to see his dream to holding talk with Iran come true.
Addressing the Friday Prayer sermon in Tehran, Ayatollah Khatami said accepting the calls by the oath-breaking US for talks under the current situation means surrendering to the pressures.
But the Iranian people have proved in the past 40 years that they will never give up to such pressures, he added.
The senior cleric pointed to the remarks by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, who ruled out the possibility of talks between Tehran and Washington back in May, saying that such negotiations will be ‘fruitless’, ‘harmful’, and ‘a total loss’.
The Friday Prayer leader underlined that other officials, including President Hassan Rouhani, are also of the same opinion about talks with the US.
