Ayatollah Khamenei: "Americans are not credible"

30
Over the past few days, several events have occurred that give additional touches to the picture of relations between the United States and Iran. Firstly, the leaders of all world states except the USA and Israel were invited to the solemn ceremony of assuming the office of the new President Rouhani, scheduled for 3 August. Secondly, one non-governmental organization from Iran invited Edward Snowden, a public informer, to visit her - so that he would share information about how the US is spying on Iranian citizens. Thirdly, from an indirect source - the prime minister of Iraq - information was received that Tehran is interested in direct negotiations with Washington. Fourth, the United States has relaxed sanctions against Iran on the list of medicines.


Ayatollah Khamenei: "Americans are not credible"


The Iranian authorities have not invited the leaders of the United States and Israel to the inauguration of the president, reports RIA News" with reference to the Associated Press. A week ago, a representative of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Abbas Aragchi, said at a press conference that leaders of all other world states, including the UK, were invited to the inauguration ceremony of Hassan Rouhani scheduled for 3 in August.

Two days later, it became known that Snowden, who lives at Sheremetyevo Airport, received a letter from an Iranian non-governmental organization, which invited him to cooperate, reports "NTV" with reference to Interfax.

The NGO is called Justice Seekers Without Borders. Her employees wrote to E. Snowden: "Since the illegal activities of the United States that you publicized include spying activities against Iranian citizens, we invite you to our country to hear the details of such actions."

The letter notes: "The Iranian people will always be on the side of those who are fighting for the truth and are ready to make sacrifices for this."

Two days later, reports appeared in the media about Tehran’s interest in direct negotiations with the United States.

As the 9tv.co.il With reference to The New York Times, Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki told the US authorities that Tehran is interested in holding direct talks with Washington. The theme is a national nuclear program. Al-Maliki said this at a meeting with the US ambassador in Baghdad, making it clear that he was in contact with the agents of Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Name he did not name.

As for the United States, it must be added here that they, after the presidential elections in Iran, are counting on Tehran’s some kind of nuclear flexibility.

Rouhani’s 64-year-old after the victory said: “This is a great epic event (the election of the head of state) opens up new opportunities for us, and countries that advocate democracy and open dialogue should respect the Iranian people and recognize the rights of the Islamic Republic ". "This is a victory of intelligence, restraint and progress over extremism," - further quotes his words Interfax.

Congratulations on the victory were pretty friendly. The world powers seem to have forgotten about their differences. The United States expressed willingness to negotiate with the Iranian authorities on a nuclear program. EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Catherine Ashton wished Rouhani success in forming the government and promised to cooperate with the new Iranian leadership in order to quickly resolve the Iranian nuclear issue diplomatically. And there, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon congratulated Rouhani on his victory.

Channel "Euronews" reported on the expectation of Tehranis transformations. Rouhani for Iranians is a symbol of change, observers say. “Long live reforms!” The residents of Tehran chanted. Rouhani guaranteed freedom to the people, promised to “return ethics to politics”, raise the economy from his knees and improve relations with the rest of the world.

And how can you lift her, if you stifle her sanctions?

Therefore, information on direct negotiations - moreover, on behalf of the Ayatollah, and not the President - most likely has ground.

It is possible that precisely in order to push the ayatollah to negotiations, Washington has slightly loosened the grip of sanctions.

"AN-online" informs that the United States Department of the Treasury has expanded the list of medicines and equipment that can be exported to Iran.

The statement by the agency notes that the list of drugs and equipment that can now be exported or re-exported to the IRI without the permission of the US Treasury has been increased in accordance with the license issued in October 2012. The ministry noted that "the United States is making efforts to meet the humanitarian needs" of the Islamic Republic.

However, the Ayatollah is not enticed by such a carrot.

According to Vladimir Sazhin ("Voice of Russia"), during Iftar - evening break ceremony after daily fasting during Ramadan, which was attended by Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and Hassan Rouhani, - Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei said: "I said earlier this year that I was not optimistic about the negotiations with the US , although in recent years I have not prohibited dialogue on specific issues, such as, for example, on Iraq. ”

Without denying the possibility of a dialogue with the United States, the Ayatollah warns: “Americans are not credible. They are not honest in their statements. The position of American officials in recent months has once again confirmed that there is no reason for optimism. ”

It is difficult to expect, the correspondent notes that the supreme leader will suddenly change his negative attitude towards the “big devil.” The confrontation remains. But the socio-economic realities in Iran require new approaches to internal and external problems, including nuclear projects. Therefore, it is possible, Vladimir Sazhin notes that in the near future we will witness the official Iranian-American dialogue.

A few months ago, the analyst points out, the likelihood of such a dialogue was extremely low. Ahmadinejad was not a suitable negotiating figure for Americans. But after Rouhani won the election, the situation changed. Vladimir Sazhin quotes Rouhani himself: “We will take two steps to end the sanctions. First, we are going to double the transparency of our nuclear program. Secondly, we intend to build trust between Iran and the international community. ”

As a result, we can summarize that by easing the sanctions, Washington made it clear to Tehran that it gives the green light to the negotiations and is now waiting for the corresponding initiative from the Ayatollah, who will be able to properly address the new president.

      A country built by emigrants on the blood of indigenous peoples and imported slaves can NOT be trustworthy.
      A country, whose main ideological symbol is the golden calf, can NOT serve as a "bulwark of mankind" ...
      A country that calls itself Christian, but created FOR the corruption of true human values ​​and the institutions of states with a long history, can be considered ONLY a product of Satan ...
      A country that, under the guise of democracy, hides the beastly essence of the personal enrichment of several families who consider themselves to be pillars of the world order and have the right to dictate their conditions to the whole world, who have no friends but only vassals, just humanly DOES NOT have the right to exist ...
      The country, the name of which is associated among most peoples of the world with grief and shed blood in the most remote corners of the planet, sooner or later - but better sooner, will crumble under the weight of its crimes committed before humanity ...

          I remember, after the collapse of the USSR, the US Secretary of State first came to us. He promised the Golden Mountains - 200 billion dollars. direct investment. It took our leadership time to understand that this is NOODLES and that all US actions are aimed at diluting all the republics as far as possible. And then Nazarbayev’s famous speech at MGY on the creation of a new Union took place. Unfortunately, not once came to everyone. But better late than never. I hope that "time and labor will grind everything."
          I think that enough time has passed already to understand: the West, led by the United States, is neither our ally nor others. They are like the jackal jackals.

      I think the nuclear program after the elections will not be curtailed anyway, and the fact that they did not invite two acne for congratulations (the USA and Israel) will be a puzzle for them. And about Snowden, as if it were not a cat in a poke. Who knows what the CIA intended. Maybe this is a specially raised sensation around him, like he began to divulge secrets and the CIA hopes that he will be taken under the wing of sworn enemies of the United States. Here, in my opinion, there should be a double opinion

    Well, the ayatollah was wrong, it was impossible to “fool” with invitations to take office of the president of Iran ....
    What did they essentially do? They were likened to the Americans (Jews)), that is, they acted just like under-humans ...
    This is a dead end branch of events, from the "clergyman" I expected Greater wisdom ...

    What does this tell us? What the Persians stupid!
    They made their actions predictable)))) should someone blather something on Iran, followed by a “response” such as what NEEDS .....
    Yes, the world has become stupid .....

    "Americans don't deserve trust."

    Yes, probably no one. Everyone pursues their interests in politics, dictated by the economy.

      This is a very wise thought. Understand that the main damage that American civilization does to the world is not even bombs and missiles. The main thing that they have largely succeeded in is to convince millions of people that uncontrolled consumption is the highest goal of human life. And if people think so, then they will act the same way no matter who they are: Americans, Germans, Chinese.
      And the main battle that we have to win is the battle for the SHOWERS of people. For them to stop seeing a competitor in their neighbor, and in acquiring - the meaning of life. I really want to believe that it is Russia that has to lead those who are ready to oppose the "gastric" values. And if the goal is just that, then everything necessary will follow. Not only missiles - tanks will fly.

    And now I will translate ....
    The US counts on unconditional flexibility in matters of oil supplies, And if notthen, then again, missiles (nuclear missiles) are suddenly discovered that are aimed at Washington and other European cities. There will be a sudden need to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. In other words, the US hopes that Iran will now share.

    Yes, amers have not yet forgiven Irie events in the early 80s. Still write boiling water. So, the way the states are negotiating is another trick on how to fuck Iran. Do not forget, Iran is the largest country in the region in terms of gas reserves. And we all know the USA: Do you have oil and gas? then we will bring democracy to you ... And no one has canceled the US geostrategic plans in the Middle East. Fortunately, Syria is holding on, because the next ones will be Iri, and this, I think, the Iranian authorities understand. It is not for nothing that they buy anti-ship missiles, medium-range tactical missiles, and others from China from China. Plus air defense from Russia. Not from a good life the state begins to arm itself ...

    Thank you Oleg! I’ll add from myself. Iran has refused many contracts concluded with various companies in the oil and gas sector. In particular with us.
    No money. Apparently, the situation with money is a seam ... But if they build a gas pipeline to Pakistan (at least 1 string), then they will not be afraid of any sanctions. In perspective. It’s not even a gas pipeline - it’s the gateway to India. And for the sake of gas, India and Pakistan will agree.

    Russia could turn to Iran “before” on many issues.
    Ayatollah Ali Khamenei called on Russia to create a "gas OPEC", and this is 5-6 years ago. We are implementing the energy union of Russia, Iran and Algeria as a geopolitical alliance; these are not attempts with shale gas. So what? Nothing. Why? - Not profitable to GAZPROM. T.O. the interests of the country are violated by the interests of individuals.

    “I said earlier this year that I’m not optimistic about negotiations with the United States, although in recent years I have not banned dialogue on specific issues, such as on Iraq. Americans are not trustworthy. They are not honest in their statements. "The position of US officials in recent months has once again confirmed that there is no reason for optimism."

    I completely agree. HMS (Gorbachev M.S.), EBN in 80-90 have given themselves to hang noodles on their ears, they still hang around (NATO is already on the border with Russia, no one was going to implement the conventional arms treaty in Europe except us, the ABM treaty remember the same thing). These creatures live by the principle of divide and rule, supplementing it with Machiavellian: the end justifies the means. Guantanomo and total surveillance complement the "democratic" mission of the United States in the world. I hope that their extensive "missionary activity" will tear them into an "economic tummy", but they will not always print unsecured pieces of paper ...

    So maybe it's time to abandon all American? And from everything invented in the USA? In order not to support the enemy, so to speak. Light a splinter, boil a wood samovar, ride a horse. And then the ayatollahs and their many supporters are such verbiage, and after all they don’t refuse something from the charms of Western civilization, although they themselves can only beat themselves in the chest with the Koran and books of Kurgin-oldik books.

    Good evening everyone!
    This is a comment forumman I liked the most.
    The author of the note is right and looks at the root. We sold our souls and our great country for priceless money signs. Well, young people are ready to tear to pieces anyone who doesn’t give her a purse or a string bag.
    But we were taught in our youth and these principles worked more than once: Man is brother to man, Friendship strengthens us, Help the weak and so on.
    Why should the money-grubber, for what reason his success, be built on how to deftly beat a competitor? Indeed, for every clever tomorrow there will be more dodgy and unprincipled.
    Indeed, it is rightly said by the people: Nobody could attach a suitcase or a cart with wealth to the coffin yet!
    And all the millionaires and more constantly want to have even more and that the whole silly world would fulfill their instructions and desires.
