Iran will never hold talks with America, the country’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on state television Tuesday morning, effectively killing chances for a rapprochement some had anticipated between leaders of both countries during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) meetings taking place this week and next.

“Iranian officials will never talk to America …. this is part of their (U.S.) policy to put pressure on Iran … their policy of maximum pressure will fail,” Khamenei said.
