(Persia Digest) - IRGC Quds Force Commander Major General Ghasem Soleimani said that the United States aims to draw Iran to the negotiation table with increased economic pressure, but the Iranian nation will not give in.
Mehr News reports that he made the remarks Monday on the second day of the nationwide conference of Iranian Police commanders and managers in Tehran.
“The enemy wants to draw us to the negotiating table by imposing economic pressures. This kind of negotiation is just as good as giving in, but our people are vigilant and smart and believe that negotiating with the enemy in the current situation is a clear act of surrendering. We certainly will not bow to this ignominy,” he said
Today, the US and its allies resort to relying on illegitimate governments in the region, he said, adding that Iran's military has reached maturity.
The more the enemies threaten Iran, the more costs they will have to pay, he highlighted.
