Today, Iran’s supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, addressed the offer that US President Trump extended to meet Iran’s representatives in person at the U.N. General Assembly in New York later in September.

“One time they propose negotiations without preconditions, and one time they say negotiations should come with 12 conditions. Such remarks either result from their disorganized policy, or work as a trick for confusing the other side. However, the Islamic Republic would not get confused, because our path is clear and we know what we are doing,” Khamenei said.

Iran’s supreme leader also said that the US had no recourse but to apply sanctions on them because Iran is too powerful of a foe to be reckoned with.

“The US administration’s policy is maximum pressure on Iran in the form of various sanctions, threats and a load of nonsense because the current US administration believes that it cannot bring the Islamic Republic to its knees or force it to show humility and acceptance with formality and compliment,” he said.

Khamenei also stressed that the US has also duped the European countries with the idea that applying maximum pressure on Iran is the best way to get Iran back to the negotiating table.

Because of this, he underscored the importance of Iranians to remain strong against the sanctions being leveled on Iran.
