Baku, Azerbaijan, Nov.4
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has warned about misusing the statements of the country's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei regarding the "infiltration of foreigners".
Rouhani said Khamenei's advice and orders are aimed at strengthening national power and being aware of enemy plots, however, people should not use those words otherwise, according to Rouhani's official website.
Speaking at the meeting with the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) Navy commanders and staff and their families in Tehran, Khamenei said on Oct. 7 that the negotiations with the US "are banned, because they only impose losses to the country".
He further said that there is a reason Iran is against the talks with the US, because "it means infiltration".
"Negotiations with the US is forbidden due to having many disadvantages and no advantages," the leader said.
Rouhani said that his Administration is attempting to understand Khamenei's statement accurately and execute it, but "we can't allow some people to misuse them in favor of their personal and partisan interests".
Iranian president said that the Iranian people are well aware of the meaning of the word "infiltration", but some may misinterpret it, and it is something that shouldn't be done.
