Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran seeks to reach a fair deal with the P5+1 group of countries over Tehran’s nuclear program that will serve the country’s national interests.
“All Iranian authorities, while insisting on [the country’s] red lines, are pursuing a good deal [with the P5+1], which is a fair and honorable agreement in line with Iran’s interests,” the Leader said in a meeting with the heads of the three branches of the Iranian government and the country’ senior officials in Tehran on Tuesday.
A study of the Americans’ demands shows that they intend to turn Iran’s nuclear industry into a “caricature” after dismantling it and abolishing the country’s nuclear identity, the Leader added.
Ayatollah Khamenei stated that the Americans are also making efforts to deprive the Iranian nation of the great advantages of the nuclear industry while maintaining pressure and sanctions against the Islamic Republic.
The Leader said Iran has always made rational demands since the beginning of the talks with the P5+1 countries and emphasized that all “cruel sanctions” on Tehran over its nuclear program must be lifted.
