The Associated Press
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) Iran's Supreme Leader is saying the western global powers will not be able to bring Iran to its knees in nuclear talks.
Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday said, "On the nuclear issue, the United States and European colonialist countries gathered and applied their entire efforts to bring the Islamic Republic to its knees but they could not and they will not," Khamenei's website reported.
These are the first remarks by Khamenei ,who has final say on all state matters, since Iran and the major global powers powers agreed Monday to decide by March 1 what needs to be done and on what kind of schedule. A final agreement is meant to follow four months later.
Khamenei has so far backed the nuclear negotiations.
