(Persia Digest) – At a meeting with ambassadors, chargé d'affaires, and officials of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, the Supreme Leader of Iran approved the President’s speech stating “if Iranian oil is not exported, no oil from the region will be exported”, and said: “The Foreign Ministry is charged with the serious follow-up of the President’s stance.”
He said the continued accusation of Iran of negative issues is the main agenda of the enemy, adding: “To reach this objective, Iranophobia, aggression and aversion towards Iran, claims of violations of democracy, lack of freedom, and human rights abuses are constantly being propagated by the West.”
The Supreme Leader said solving the problems of the country by negotiating or dealing with America is a clear mistake, adding: “The US has a fundamental problem with the Islamic regime. Also, there are many countries in Africa, Asia, and Latin American who have relations with the US, but still face many problems.”
He highlighted the deep hostility of the United States towards the Islamic Republic, reminding: “The Americans are seeking the position they had before the 1979 revolution in Iran and will not concede to less.”
Ayatollah Khamenei continued: “I have always reiterated that one cannot count on America’s word and even signature. Therefore, talks with the US is pointless.”
He said optimizing the country’s capacities to the fullest was important, adding: “Talks with the EU must continue, but we must not wait for a European package. There is much work to be done in the country.”
