Khamenei, who is Iran’s top authority, was quoted on state TV as saying that one way to block America’s political infiltration is to ban any talks with America. Those who believe that negotiations will solve problems between the two sides are 100 percent wrong, he said.

Relations between the two countries have reached a crisis over the past year, after US President Donald Trump abandoned a 2015 nuclear pact between Iran and world powers under which Tehran agreed to the curtailing of its nuclear program in return for lifting sanctions.
