There will be no war with US: Iran leader

Hindustan Times (Patiala) - - World -

: Iran’s Supreme Leader Ay­a­tol­lah Ali Khamenei said on Tues­day there would no war with the US de­spite mount­ing ten­sions.

In com­ments car­ried by state TV, Khamenei re­it­er­ated Iran won’t ne­go­ti­ate with the US on a nu­clear deal. “There won’t be any war. The Ira­nian na­tion has cho­sen the path of re­sis­tance.”

In Sochi, Rus­sia, US sec­re­tary of state Mike Pom­peo said the US doesn’t want war but vowed to keep pres­sur­ing Tehran. “We fun­da­men­tally do not see a war with Iran,” he told a joint news con­fer­ence with Rus­sian foreign min­is­ter Sergei Lavrov.

Iran’s Pres­i­dent Has­san Rouhani told a meet­ing of cler­ics that his coun­try is “too great to be in­tim­i­dated” by any­one. “God will­ing we will pass this dif­fi­cult pe­riod with glory and our heads held high, and de­feat the en­emy,” state me­dia quoted him as say­ing on Mon­day.AGEN­CIES
