Ayatollah Khamenie

DUBAI: Iran’s Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, said on Wednesday that any negotiations with the United States were banned because they brought endless disadvantages that could harm the Islamic Republic.


“Through negotiations Americans seek to influence Iran but there are naive people in Iran who don’t understand this,” Khamenei was quoted by his website as saying to Revolutionary Guards Navy commanders.
