Supreme Leader: West must accept our red lines
Wed, 16 Jul 2008 Press TV
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution says that the West must respect Iran's 'red lines' before entering nuclear talks with Tehran. Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Wednesday that Tehran is ready for negotiations with world powers as long as no one threatens Iran over its nuclear program.
"We have made clear our stance and red lines on the nuclear issue. Our position on the matter should be respected," the Leader said. "Iranian experts have acquired nuclear technology and no power in the world can deprive Iran of its right to this know-how."
The Leader's remarks were made ahead of talks scheduled for Saturday in Geneva between Iran's top nuclear negotiator, Saeed Jalili, and EU foreign policy chief Javier Solana on a Western package of incentives.
