Zionists major obstacle on way of Iran-US talks: religious leader

Qom, Oct 9, IRNA – A senior religious leader Ayatollah Naser Makarem Shirazi said on Wednesday that Zionist regime with its powerful lobby in the United States creates obstacles on the way of solving problems between Tehran and Washington.

The Zionists do not want normalization of Iranian relations with the US and the western countries, the Ayatollah said, adding they try to complicate the situation to prevent the negotiations from making headway.

He further noted that the US Congress is in the hands of Zionists and they will negatively affect normalization of relations with Iran when they put to the vote in the Congress.

He urged the Iranian negotiating team to remain vigilant during nuclear talks with the Western governments and have in mind national interests and rights of the Iranian nation.

He said that Iran engages in talks with all countries, but expressed doubt about negotiations with the US and the Europe to be fruitful.
