Khamenei warns Iranian president against negotiating with US

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Iran’s supreme leader, Ali Khamenei, has warned President Hassan Rouhani indirectly against negotiating with the US administration.

This came in the new issue of the weekly magazine “Line of Hezbollah”, published by the Office of the Iranian leader, which touched on Rouhani’s statements about his willingness to negotiate with the US administration in the event of lifting the sanctions.

“Negotiations with the United States are strictly prohibited, not only with the US president, but also with her foreign minister and officials,” the magazine said on its cover.

The magazine also reminded Khamenei’s warnings to the government about negotiations with the United States on the magazine’s internal pages.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly expressed an interest in meeting Iranian officials, but Iranian leader Khamenei has closed the door to negotiations, saying: “The US administration that has withdrawn from the nuclear deal unilaterally is unreliable.”

Earlier this week, the Iranian president had called for the lifting of US sanctions on Tehran as a first step to start dialogue with Washington, after US President Donald Trump said he was ready to meet Rouhani “if conditions are right.”
