DUBAI - Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Sunday he would go along with any nuclear deal with the six major powers if it did not go against the interests of his nation.
"I would go along with the agreement in the making," Khamenei said in a speech to air force personnel, as quoted by the official news agency IRNA, alluding to ongoing negotiations to reach a pact that would curb Iran's disputed nuclear work in return for a phased lifting of sanctions imposed on Tehran.
"Our (nuclear) negotiators are trying to take the weapon of sanctions away from the enemy. If they can, so much the better. If they fail, everyone should know there are many ways at our disposal to dull this weapon," he said.
