TEHRAN: Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Monday that there would be neither war nor negotiations with the United States. 

"Recently, U.S. officials have been talking blatantly about us. Beside sanctions, they are talking about war and negotiations," he said via his official Twitter account in English.

"In this regard, let me say a few words to the people: THERE WILL BE NO WAR, NOR WILL WE NEGOTIATE WITH THE U.S."
