Larijani rules out possibility of direct talks with U.S.
Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani has said in the current situation, it is not possible to hold direct talks with US officials.
“Negotiation with the U.S is not possible and no one has the right to make compromise with the great satan (the U.S),” Larijani told marchers who held solidarity rally in Qom to mark the International Qods Day
According to the Supreme Leader’s guidelines, Iran’s policy is negotiation but not with the U.S., he added.
Larijani also pointed to the peace talks between the Palestinian Authority chief and the Israeli prime minister in Washington on Thursday, describing the talks as a sham and cheap move to deceive the world’s public opinion.
“Compromise talks proposed by the U.S. president were the worst kind of negotiations and were like a show,” he said.
On the one hand Israel puts the Palestinian nation under extreme pressure, and on the other, the U.S. tries to undermine the resistance movement by arranging the so-called peace talks, he stated.
The U.S. president pretends that he is willing to help Muslims, but he should first account for his presence in Iraq and Afghanistan, the senior lawmaker who represents Qom told demonstrators.
“Has the U.S. military brought peace, security, and democracy to these countries?”
By proposing “deceptive plans” such as peace talks, the U.S. is seeking to provide lasting security for Israel, he added.
He went on to say that if the U.S. and the Zionist regime imagine they can undermine the resistance movements in Palestine and Lebanon by putting them under political and economic pressure, they are making a big mistake.
The Iranian nation will proudly and wholeheartedly support Palestinian nation and Hezbollah, he assured.
