No Friendship with US: Iran’s Judiciary Chief
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Iran’s Judiciary Chief Ayatollah Sadeq Amoli Larijani rejected the notion of any normalization of ties between Tehran and Washington, warning Iranian officials to be mindful of the US hostility towards the country.
“We recommend the (Iranian) politicians and diplomatic body to adjust their behavior proportional to the Americans’ conduct, and to be aware that it is impossible to make friends with the enemy,” Ayatollah Amoli Larijani said in a gathering of senior judiciary officials on Monday.
Enumerating a litany of US crimes and hostile actions against Iran, the top official stressed the need for Iran’s reaction on the basis of realities and the West’s approach.
Earlier in September, Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei also noted that US hostility towards the Iranian nation will never end, calling for the country’s increasing “national might” to fight off US plots.
The only way for ending the US plots is reinforcement of Iran’s national might, Ayatollah Khamenei pointed out, saying the country should get so powerful as to make “the Great Satan” give up hope about the efficiency of its hostility.
