Supreme Leader Rejects 'Deceptive' Talks with Americans (Kayhan, Islamic Republic of Iran)


"Is the recent proposal from the Obama Administration for direct talks with Iran just an empty gesture to make Washington look reasonable, and Iran appear truculant? According to this news account from Iran's state-run Kayhan, Iran Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has told officers of his nation's armed forces that Iran will not negotiate with America while the U.S. 'holds a gun to Iran's head.'"

TEHRAN: The leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, has rejected any talks with the United States called for under pressure and threats.


"I am not a diplomat. I am a revolutionary, and I speak frankly, honestly, and firmly. An offer of talks makes sense only when the side making the offer shows its goodwill," Ayatollah Khamenei said during a meeting with naval officials and commanders on Thursday.


"Negotiation is meaningful only when the two sides talk with goodwill, with equality and without seeking to deceive one another. Therefore, 'negotiation for the sake of negotiation,' 'tactical negotiation,' and negotiation simply to sell a superpower's gesture to the world, is deception," the leader stated.


Ayatollah Khamenei also noted that during the past four years, nothing but continuing conspiracies, the abetting of seditionists and the support of terrorists who have assassinated Iranian scientists has been seen from the United States.


"You (Americans) point a gun at Iran and say either negotiate or we will pull the trigger! You should know that pressure and negotiations don't go together, and the [Iranian] nation will not be intimidated by such tactics."


Ayatollah Khamenei pointed to remarks by American officials that "the ball is now in Iran's court," noting, "The ball is in your court, because you should answer the question of whether speaking of talks while continuing pressure and threats makes any sense."


The leader pointed out, however, that, "We of course understand their need for negotiations, because America's Middle East policy has failed, and in order to compensate for this failure, they need a trump card. ... Bringing Iran to the negotiating table is the trump card the U.S. needs," Ayatollah Khamenei noted, adding that it is seeking to show the world that it has good will. But no one sees any goodwill. Talks with the United States solves nothing because they have failed to fulfill a single one of their promises in 60 years."

Referring to the conspiracies carried out by Iran's enemies, including coups, military provocations, all-out support for aggressor enemies, hard war, soft war, intense pressure by the evil media empire of the West as well as harsh and increasing sanctions, Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out that for the past 30 years, the enemies have sought to create disappointment with the Islamic Republic among the Iranian nation, but that they have utterly failed.

The leader stressed that the Iranian nation would castigate anyone who renounces the national interest, sovereignty and progress of the country to satisfy the United States.


Speaking at the 49th annual Munich Security Conference in Germany on February 2, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden said Washington was ready to hold direct talks with Iran over the country's nuclear energy program.


The United States, the Israeli regime, and some of their allies, have repeatedly accused Iran of pursuing non-civilian objectives with its nuclear energy program.


Iran argues that as a signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency, it is entitled to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.
