Head of Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps, Brigadier General Hossein Salami, on Wednesday indicated that Hezbollah “has acquired capabilities in Syria that allow it to obliterate Israel alone.”
“The Iranian people forgot about talking to the United States and removed it from their thought," he said during a press conference, adding that “any negotiation with the US is aimed at making us surrender.”
His comments came in reference of the recent weeks’ suggestions of talks between Iran and the US to reduce tensions between the two countries.
“Negotiations would be a farce and not a way to resolve [matters],” arguing that conducting talks with the US will only increase the pressure and demands.
"The US and its allies’ attempts to undermine Iran's regional influence has backfired and instead formed a united front against the Zionist regime,” he noted.
