Iran's Khamenei rejects Trump offer of talks, chides govet over economy

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei speaks at the Hussayniyeh of Imam Khomeini in Tehran Iran

The Times of Israel notes Khamenei's outline on his English Twitter account as to why negotiations are out of the question, in which he calls the USA government a "duplicitous" one that uses a bait-and-switch-style "formula" during talks. "[The Americans] are exaggerating the possibility of a war with Iran".

"More than (U.S.) sanctions, economic mismanagement is putting pressure on ordinary Iranians".

Washington reimposed the sanctions last week after pulling out of a 2015 global deal aimed at curbing Iran's nuclear program in return for an easing of economic sanctions. The mismanagement is even worse than U.S. sanctions, he said.

Khamenei, whose remarks on Monday come amid a sharp fall in the rial currency that has prompted angry protests, criticized the government of President Hassan Rouhani, a pragmatist cleric who championed the 2015 deal aimed at ending Iran's political and economic isolation.
