Iranian supreme leader: We ousted ‘the Satan’ and Israel ‘will not see the coming 25 years’
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that his country would not enter into talks with the US outside the nuclear deal with world powers as Washington could use other negotiations to “penetrate” the Islamic Republic.
Khamenei’s comments, published on his website, come as enough US lawmakers now support the nuclear deal to block passage of a resolution of disapproval and hand President Barack Obama a major foreign-policy victory.
“We approved talks with the United States about nuclear issue specifically,” Khamenei said. “We have not allowed talks with the US in other fields and we not negotiate with them.”
Speaking to a group of people in Tehran, Khamenei reiterated that America remained the “Great Satan.”
“The Iranian nation ousted the Satan,” he said, adding, “We should not let it back through the window to penetrate” Iran.
On Tuesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani signaled that Iran was ready to hold talks with the world powers on ways to resolve Syria’s civil war, providing such negotiations can secure peace and democracy in the conflict-torn country. Iran supports embattled President Bashar Assad, whom the US opposes.
