In a public speech on Wednesday, Khamenei said that he would not permit negotiations with the United States beyond those that culminated in a nuclear deal with world powers in July.
“We allowed negotiation with the US only on the nuclear issue for certain reasons,” Khamenei said. “In other areas we did not and will not allow negotiations with the US.
“The Iranian nation expelled this Great Satan, we barred their direct access and now we must not allow their indirect access and infiltration.”
With Congress back from recess and heading full steam ahead for a showdown on the Iran nuclear deal, US President Barack Obama on Tuesday reached the key threshold of 41 Democratic senators needed to block a resolution disapproving the controversial accord.
Should all 41 vote against advancing the Republican-backed resolution, a blocking procedure known as a filibuster, the effort to kill the landmark agreement would remain bogged down in the 100-member Senate, ensuring a major political victory for Obama.
Senators Richard Blumenthal, Ron Wyden and Gary Peters announced Tuesday that they will support the agreement struck by world powers and Iran in July after years of negotiations to address Western concerns that Tehran was developing a nuclear bomb.
