Ayatollah Mohammad Emami Kashani speaking to prayers in Tehran on Friday noon said that even if the ongoing nuclear negotiations between Iran and the six world powers (the group 5+1) fail, Iran will not be the loser.
We will be the winner because we have proven that we follow reason, he asserted.
On the other hand, the Western side will lose because it will have proven to be all about bullying and arrogance, he noted.
The ayatollah added that if the nuclear talks fail, no threat will be posed to the Islamic Republic.
Pointing to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to stall a possible nuclear deal between Iran and the group 5+1, he said that Netanyahu is likely to lead the US and its allies to annihilation.
