Echoing recent remarks by the regime’s Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei, Tehran’s interim Friday prayers leader Kazem Seddiqi was said: Iran will never retreat from its nuclear achievements, nor will shut down a single nuclear facility in the country.

Earlier this month Khamenei said Iran would never allow its “scientific nuclear move” to be brought to a halt. “None of the country’s nuclear achievements could be shut down, and nobody has the right to bargain over them.”
