Iran has just issued a chilling warning to the West. The nation has declared that it will not negotiate over its authority in the Middle East and its presence in other certain nations.
Iran’s comments come as French foreign minister sought to discuss Tehran’s role in regional conflicts on a visit to the capital. Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said that Iran will not negotiate with the West over its presence in the Middle East. Jean-Yves Le Drian, France’s foreign minister, traveled to Tehran on Monday with a brief to reaffirm Europe’s support for a nuclear deal that opened Iran’s economy while echoing the United State’s concern about Tehran’s missile program and its influence in the region. French President Emmanuel Macron has criticised the program and raised the possibility of new sanctions.
“European countries come (to Tehran) and say we want to negotiate with Iran over its presence in the region. It is none of your business. It is our region. Why are you here?” Khamenei was quoted as saying by his official website. Khamenei said Iran would only negotiate their presence in the region with other nation-states in the Middle East.
According to the Express UK, President Donald Trump has threatened to pull out of the nuclear deal unless three European signatories help “fix” the accord by forcing Iran to limit its sway in the Middle East and rein in its missile program. Iran responded by saying “We will negotiate with America when we wanted to be present in America,” he added.
Trump has also promised that he would never allow Iran to become nuclear. The Trump administration will “never allow Iran to acquire a nuclear weapon” as it seeks to prevent the outbreak of World War 3 with Hassan Rouhani, Vice President Mike Pence has declared.
Pence warned the move by Trump signaled Hassan Rouhani’s final opportunity. “Make no mistake about it, this is their last chance. Unless the Iran nuclear deal is fixed in the coming months, the United States of America will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal immediately.
