Iran Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khomeini has said he doesn’t consider United States of America President, Donald Trump a person deserving exchanging message with.
He also said, genuineness is very rare among U.S. officials
The Iran Supreme Leader said in a series of tweets on his official twitter handle, stated further that he has no response in reaction to a message Trump delivered by the visiting Japan President, Abe Shinzo.
Abe is on a two day working visit to Iran as an interluctor for the American President to ease tension between the two countries.
Abe’s trip is the highest-level effort yet to de-escalate the crisis as Tehran appears to break the 2015 nuclear deal it struck with world powers, an accord that the Trump administration unilaterally pulled out of last year.
It’s also the first visit of a sitting Japanese premier in the 40 years since the Islamic Revolution.
He said while Iran wasn’t interested in developing a nuclear weapon, America could not do anything if it want to.
He said,” We have no doubt in @abeshinzo’s goodwill and seriousness; but regarding what you mentioned from U.S. president, I don’t consider Trump as a person deserving to exchange messages with; I have no response for him & will not answer him.”
“The Islamic Republic has no trust in the U.S. and the previous bitter experience we had in negotiating with the U.S. within #JCPOA will never be repeated again, because no free & wise nation would accept negotiations under pressure.”
“Our problem with the U.S. is not the issue of regime change; because even if they pursue such a thing, they won’t be able to achieve it, just as previous U.S. presidents tried in vain to destroy the Islamic Republic over the past 40 years.”
“We oppose nuclear weapons & our religious verdicts prohibit building nuclear weapons. But know that if we ever intended to produce nuclear weapons, the U.S. wouldn’t be able to do anything against that, & U.S.’s prohibition would never make an obstacle.”
“The U.S. doesn’t have, by any means, the competency to say which country should or shouldn’t possess nuclear weapons; because the U.S. has thousands of nuclear warheads in its arsenals.”
“We do not believe at all that the U.S. is seeking genuine negotiations with Iran; because genuine negotiations would never come from a person like Trump. Genuineness is very rare among U.S. officials.”
“Abe Shinzo U.S. president met & talked with you a few days ago, including about Iran. But after returning from Japan, he immediately imposed sanctions on Iran’s petrochemical industry. Is this a message of honesty? Does that show he is willing to hold genuine negotiations?”
“After the nuclear deal, the first one to immediately breach the JCPOA was Obama; the same person who had requested negotiations with Iran & had sent a mediator. This is our experience, & Mr. Abe, know that we won’t repeat the same experience.”
“You said Mr. Abe Shinzo, that Trump has said negotiations with the U.S. would lead to Iran’s progress. By the Grace of God, without negotiations & despite sanctions, we will progress.”
“It’s good that you acknowledge the fact that the Americans have always wanted to impose their own thoughts & beliefs on other nations; and it’s also good to know that the Americans observe no limit in imposing their views on others.”
“I welcome your suggestion to expand relations with the Islamic Republic of Iran. Japan is an important country in Asia and if they are willing to expand relations with Iran, they should demonstrate their firm determination, just as some important countries have done so.”
