Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Monday refused US President Donald Trump’s offer to negotiate.
In a tweet, Khamenei wrote, “Recently, U.S. officials have been talking blatantly about us. Beside sanctions, they are talking about war and negotiations.”
“In this regard, let me say a few words to the people: THERE WILL BE NO WAR, NOR WILL WE NEGOTIATE WITH THE U.S..”
Earlier on Monday, Khamenei claimed the US sanctions will not necessarily harm Iran .
“Today’s livelihood problems do not emerge from outside; they are internal,” he tweeted. “If actions are taken more efficiently, more prudently, more swiftly and more firmly, #sanctions cannot have much effect and they can be resisted.”
