"Over the years
Americans have kept saying that they want to hold negotiations with Iran
and I have not prohibited this in particular cases like Iraq but
I'm not optimistic about the US request for negotiation, because US
has shown to be unreliable and illogical," Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday.
In a statement posted on his Facebook page, the Ayatollah stated that Iran believes in "interaction with the world," but must be aware of the other side as "no-one can forget the hostilities of some countries against Iran."
