‘Obvious Mistake’ negotiating with Washington, this is what Ali Khamenei published today. The comment was put on his website.
The supreme leader sounds very worried but cheered the previous remark by Rouhani to close down the Strait of Hormuz. This is a warning to America though Iran News Wire has spoken to many Iranians in support of a free Iran. They believe this is just an aggressive outside layer of the regime. They don’t have the energy or power to carry out such a threat. On the long run, it will cost them lots more than the situation already is.
Khamenei continued to say that the United States is unreliable. This took place during his meeting with officials since early hours.
The word and even the signature of the Americans cannot be relied upon, so negotiations with America are of no avail.
