Washington: The United States has made it clear that Supreme Leader Ayatullah Ali Khamenei’s threats to continue its nuclear program will not change its policy on Iran.
According to the World News Agency, White House spokeswoman Jane Sackie said in a weekly briefing to the media that the United States would not lift sanctions on Iran before it stopped uranium enrichment and agreed to talks.
Jane Sackie added that Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei’s controversial statement on continuing the nuclear program and increasing the amount of uranium enrichment would not be threatened, nor would the United States change its policy.
A White House spokesman said the policy on Iran had been developed by consensus and that the current government would consult with Congress on any future changes, but that this was subject to Iran’s adherence to the nuclear deal.
Jane Sackie also said that the EU statement called for participation in diplomatic consultations between the two countries, for which we would wait for Iran to respond to the invitation.
It should be noted that Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had said in a threatening statement that Iran will not bow down to the world powers and no power can stop Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
