Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says Iran will not back down an iota from its rights, including its nuclear rights, and will never give in to pressure.

Addressing the commanders and members of the Basij volunteer force in Tehran on Wednesday, Ayatollah Khamenei noted the rights of the Iranian nation, including its nuclear rights, must be recognized, Press TV reported.

The leader voiced his support for the Iranian administration and officials, including the nuclear negotiating team.

Ayatollah Khamenei also said he would not get involved in the details of the negotiations between Iran and the six countries.

However, the Leader added that there are red lines that the Iranian negotiators will have to observe.

The Leader of the Islamic Revolution also said Iran’s enemies think they can bring the Iranian nation to its knees through imposing sanctions.

Ayatollah Khamenei said that sanctions are one of the tools that the enemies of Iran are using to defeat the Iranian nation.

The Leader said the enemies’ mistake is that “they have not learned from their past mistakes.”

Ayatollah Khamenei said the US officials know that sanctions against Iran are ineffectual.

The Leader also said unlike what some people think, heroic leniency does not mean giving up the ideals of the Islamic establishment it means artistic maneuvers to achieve objectives.

Ayatollah Khamenei said a number of enemies used this as a pretext to accuse the Islamic establishment of backtracking on its principles which is untrue and a misunderstanding.
