Iran’s Supreme Leader says he supports reaching a resolution in the nuclear negotiations with the 5+1 but does not support “a bad agreement”.

In a meeting with the commander of the Iranian Air Force on February 8, Ayatollah Khamenei said: “I support a practical agreement however I do not support a bad agreement.”

In a speech marking the anniversary of the Iranian Revolution, he said: “Our negotiators are working hard to take away the weapon of sanctions from the enemy; if they can do it, that is fine. If they can’t, everyone must know that there are many ways in the country to defuse this weapon.”

The Iranian leader’s speech on the anniversary of the Revolution is a mark of support for the efforts of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his team.

Zarif, who has been busy meeting with his Western counterparts in Geneva and Munich, has told IRNA that reaching no resolution “would not be the end of the world”.
