TEHRAN (AFP) - Iran's top decision-maker Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Monday that while he is not against a resumption of nuclear negotiations with the world's major powers, the talks will "lead nowhere".
"Some of the officials of the previous government as well as the officials of this government think the problem will be resolved if they negotiate the nuclear issue," Khamenei said in remarks published on his website Khamenei.ir.
"I repeat it again that I am not optimistic about the negotiations and they will lead nowhere, but I am not against them," he added.
