Iran: Khamenei Says Negotiations With US Banned Due To Countless Disadvantages
By Iran Review
Iran’s Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says holding negotiations with the US is banned as it has countless disadvantages and no benefits.
“The problem currently facing the country is due to certain individuals who are quite thoughtless or quite credulous and don’t understand these realities,” said Ayatollah Khamenei in an apparent reference to those who favor talks with Washington.
Holding talks with Washington would be tantamount to “infiltration” and paving the way for imposing its will, the Leader noted.
Ayatollah Khamenei further said the enemies had planned to make the Persian Gulf region insecure for Iran, but the naval forces of the IRGC made the plot backfire and the waters “became insecure for the enemies themselves.”
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution also said the enemy is conspiring to undercut Iranians’ political and religious beliefs.
“Among the schemes orchestrated by the enemy’s political and cultural armies are to undermine religious and political beliefs and seek to draw in active and influential youth at different levels,” said the Leader.
He made the remark while highlighting the enemy’s plots and massive cultural, ideological and political inroads into the Islamic Revolution, saying the efforts being made by faithful individuals and committed authorities to counter such inroads are “useful and necessary.”
Among key measures which could be adopted to foil enemy plots is to promote concepts such as “Jihad,” “martyr and martyrdom” and “patience for the sake of God.”
“Convincing the audience as well as using art and advertising tools” is a prelude to better promotion of these concepts, the Leader noted.
He urged intellectuals and artists to work in tandem and turn out “effective products,” a task which, as the Leader said, should also involve authorities and the faithful public.
