Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said Saturday Iran should continue talks with Europe over the nuclear deal but must first draw on domestic potential to solve economic problems instead of waiting for the Europeans to help. 
"Negotiations with the Europeans should not discontinue,But we should not wait for a European proposal…Instead pursue the many actions that need to be taken inside the country," he told Foreign Ministry officials and Iranian ambassadors in Tehran, his official website reported.  
The country's untapped potential should be effectively utilized, he said, adding that it is an "obvious mistake" to think that rapprochement or relations with the United States could help resolve domestic problems. 
"Neither the word nor the signature of the Americans can be trusted. Negotiations with the United States are of no avail."
