Claims of Efforts to Hold US Talks RejectedClaims of Efforts to Hold US Talks Rejected

Iran’s Foreign Ministry categorically denied the claim made by a lawmaker that the ministry is making efforts to hold talks with the US in a neighboring country.
In a statement on Saturday, the Foreign Ministry dismissed the comments by controversial parliamentarian Javad Karimi Qoddousi as “wrong and baseless” about diplomatic efforts to make contact and hold talks with the US government in a neighboring country, Tasnim News Agency reported.
The statement underlined that Foreign Ministry personnel follow the guidelines of Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei about the way to interact with the US government and would never disobey the rules.
It stressed that the diplomatic apparatus strongly believes in the futility of any negotiation with US President Donald Trump’s administration, which reneges on commitments, breaks the law and is against Iran.
According to the statement, the claim by the lawmaker, which originates from his factional proclivities, is based on inauthentic sources whose purpose is to inflame tensions in the country.
