Iranian Parliament Speaker Mohammad Baqer Qalibaf stressed on Sunday that talks with the United States are futile and harmful.
In an address to the legislature, Qalibaf said the new Parliament regards the fight against the world arrogance as an ideological cause and a strategic interest.
The Parliament dismisses “negotiations and compromise with the US – the axis of global arrogance- as futile and harmful,” he was quoted as saying by Tasnim news agency.
Qalibaf said Iran’s strategy in confrontation with the “American terrorists” is completion of the process of revenge for the assassination of top Iranian commander Lt. General Qassem Suleimani.
A full revenge will be taken when the “terrorist US army” is completely expelled from the region, he stated.
Qalibaf also reaffirmed the Parliament’s commitment to supporting the Palestinian nation, the Lebanese Hezbollah, Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, the oppressed people of Yemen, as well as the Iraqi government, nation and religious authorities.
The Islamic Republic has made constant progress in strategic areas and turned into a major regional power and an influential actor in the international arena, Qalibaf further stressed.
