DUBAI (RAHNUMA): Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said on Friday that his country is not in a hurry for the United States to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal, but he insisted that the sanctions must be lifted immediately.
“We are not insisting nor in a hurry for the US to return to the deal,” Khamenei said in live televised remarks.
“But what is logical is our demand, is the lifting of the sanctions,” he added.
He likewise said that a reconciliation with the West will not bring stability to region.
Tehran’s presence in the region brings stability, aimed at strengthening ties with ‘friends’, Khamenei said.
Khamenei also banned the government from importing new coronavirus vaccines from the United States and Britain.
