MP: Leader Has Final Say on Iran-US Talks

Only the Supreme Leader's opinion about the issue deserves obedience, Rapporteur of the parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Kazzem Jalali told reporters on the sidelines of an open session of the parliament here in Tehran today.

The United States and Iran broke diplomatic relations in April 1980, after Iranian students seized the United States' espionage center at its embassy in Tehran. The two countries have had tense relations ever since.

Meantime, the lawmaker warned against discussions and media speculations about the resumption of ties between Tehran and Washington, saying, "Under the present conditions that Americans are facing waves of public hatred and the Islamic Revolution has been able to practically prevail over the arrogant powers through its anti-arrogance spirit, raising debates and discussions about relations or interaction with the US is a diversion and is not beneficial to the ideals and causes of the late Imam (founder of the Islamic Republic), the Islamic Revolution and regional developments."

Jalali's remarks came after German Chancellor Angela Merkel earlier this month reaffirmed support for direct talks between Tehran and Washington geared at resolving the impasse over Iran's nuclear program.

Addressing the German parliament ahead of a G8 summit in Italy, Merkel voiced "explicit support" for direct dialogue between the US and Iran.

US President Barack Obama pledged last month his country's readiness to start a "serious dialogue" with Iran.
