'No war, no negotiations with the US'

Trump Juncker trade war

As you can imagine, more people are reading The Jerusalem Post than ever before.

"Both nationally and in Europe, we are looking for ways to keep financial channels open", he added.

Help us grow and continue telling Israel's story to the world.

Mr Trump has also threatened to penalise companies that continue to operate in Iran.

"I ban holding any talks with America. War will not happen and we will not enter talks".

The imposed sanctions target Iran's gold and precious metals, as well as the purchase of cars manufactured in the U.S. and United States dollars. "Beside sanctions, they are talking about war and negotiations", Khamenei said via his official Twitter account in English.

But on Monday, it was the first time that Supreme Leader Khamenei has commented publicly on the stand-off between the two nations. "[The Americans] are exaggerating the possibility of a war with Iran. We will respond with great force if war is waged against us but we will never start a war".

Iranian officials - including the country's President, Hassan Rouhani - previously rejected the new offer from the US.

Jürgen Klopp: Liverpool can not be anything but the challenger
The result continued West Ham's awful record at Anfield , which now extends to one win in 46 league games . After that, a clear goal offside decided the game with the third goal.

According to state TV, Mr Khamenei told the gathering: "More than the sanctions, economic mismanagement (by the government) is putting pressure on ordinary Iranians".

But Khamenei criticised conservatives who called for Rouhani's resignation, saying they were inadvertently "playing into the hands of the enemy".

Turning to the U.S. sanctions against Iran, the minister said Germany and its European Union allies would continue to support companies doing business with Iran despite United States pressure.

The rial has lost about half of its value since April in anticipation of the renewed US sanctions, driven mainly by heavy demand for dollars among ordinary Iranians trying to protect their savings.

Khamenei said of the disgraced officials: "The corrupt people (officials) should be punished firmly", Khamenei said on Monday.

Protests in cities and towns across Iran have often begun with slogans against the high cost of living, high prices and a lack of jobs, but have then quickly turned into anti-government rallies.

As if to drive the point home, on Monday Tehran also unveiled a new generation of its short-range ballistic missiles - defying USA demands to curb the weapons programme.

There was also a show of military resolve as Defence Minister Amir Hatami unveiled a next generation short-range ballistic missile and vowed to further boost the country's missile capabilities.
