Iran's Khamenei says nuclear talks show U.S. enmity
ANKARA (REUTERS) - Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Thursday that nuclear negotiations with world powers had revealed U.S. "enmity" towards the Islamic state.
He was speaking hours before the resumption of talks in Geneva.
"We had announced previously that on certain issues, if we feel it is expedient, we would negotiate with the Satan (the United States) to deter its evil," Khamenei told a gathering, reported by the official IRNA news agency.
"The nuclear talks showed the enmity of America against Iran, Iranians, Islam and Muslims," he said.
