Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was on the wires last minutes, via Iran’s state TV, citing that Iran will never hold talks with the US.
Khamenei noted: “Iranian officials will never talk to America …. this is part of their (U.S.) policy to put pressure on Iran … their policy of maximum pressure will fail.”
