Iran’s Experts Assembly Chairman Rejects Bilateral Relations with US
Chairman of Iran’s Assembly of Experts Ayatollah Mohammad Yazdi strongly rejected the possibility of the resumption of diplomatic ties between Tehran and Washington, stressing that the nuclear agreement would not mean a rapprochement between Tehran and Washington.
Addressing the opening ceremony of the 18th meeting of the Assembly of Experts in Tehran on Tuesday, Ayatollah Yazdi said those in the US who dream “of bringing your rulers back to power and turning Iran into your consumer market and your source of revenue” will die but they will never see a realization of their dreams.
He pointed out that nuclear negotiations and agreement between Iran and Group 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, France and Britain plus Germany) have nothing to do with bilateral relations, “We are not to talk about bilateral and trilateral relations and the gradual flow of their companies into Iran.”
In July, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei underlined the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the six world powers will not change Iran’s policy towards the US.
“In any case the policy of the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic system vis-à-vis the US will not change,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing worshippers in the Eid al-Fitr (marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan) prayers in Tehran.
Iran’s Supreme Leader reiterated that whether the text of the nuclear agreement is ratified by the Iranian parliament or not, Iran will continue supporting the oppressed Palestinian nation, Yemen, Bahrain as well as the nations and governments of Syria and Iraq and the honest warriors of Lebanon and Palestine.
Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that Iran’s policy towards the US will never change.
The Leader pointed to the boastful remarks of the US statesmen and officials in recent days, and said, “The US statesmen and stateswomen are inevitably making boastful remarks these days to resolve their internal problems, but their brags are not real.
He said that Islamic Iran will never yield to excessive demands of the enemies while safeguarding its defensive and security capabilities.
