Iran’s Supreme Leader has said the country will not allow any inspections of its military sites.
Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday that his government “won’t allow foreigners to carry out any inspections on military sites”
Khamenei also said Iran would not allow foreign governments or agencies to interview its scientists.
Press TV reports:
They (P5+1 countries) are making new comments in the [nuclear] negotiations. Regarding the inspections, we have said that we will not allow foreigners to carry out inspections of any [Iranian] military sites,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in the commencement ceremony for graduates of Imam Hossein Military Academy in Tehran on Wednesday.
The Leader further warned against the enemies’ acquisitiveness.
“The enemies should know that the Iranian nation and officials will, by no means, give in to excessive demands and bullying,” Ayatollah Khamenei underlined.
Excessive demands, said the Leader, are among the challenges facing the Islamic establishment of Iran, saying,”We are not afraid of these challenges … the Iranian nation will weather these challenges with determination, trust in God and self-reliance.”
Ayatollah Khamenei added that foreigners’ call for interview with Iranian nuclear scientists means “interrogation” and emphasized that he would not allow aliens to speak with Iranian scientists in the nuclear domain and “other sensitive majors.”
“Firm resolve” and “lack of inaction” are the only way to counter the “brazen enemy,” said the Leader, addressing nuclear officials.
Ayatollah Khamenei said the officials should be able to relay the Iranian people’s message and show the nation’s grandeur in the nuclear negotiations.
Ayatollah Khamenei also warned of enemies’ plan to spread proxy wars to the Iranian borders in collusion with some “silly” officials of Persian Gulf countries.
In case of any mischievous acts by the enemies to wage proxy wars, Iran will show a very tough reaction, the Leader stated.
