Ayatollah Khamenei: United States elections results have no impact on Iranian policy

Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Tuesday said the outcome of the United States elections would not influence Iranian policy towards Washington.

“Iran’s policy regarding the United States has been planned and is clear … whoever becomes president in the United States will not influence this policy,” Khamenei told Iranian state television.

President Hassan Rowhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif have also repeatedly stressed they do not care about the United States election outcome.

Observers, however, believe that Iran is hoping for a defeat of President Donald Trump and a win for Democratic candidate Joe Biden, which could lead to the United States rejoining the 2015 nuclear deal and the lifting of United States sanctions against Iran.

Rowhani and Zarif have suggested that Iran would be prepared to enter negotiations with the United States if it returns to the deal, which limits Iran’s nuclear programme in exchange for the lifting of international sanctions.

Trump took the United States out of the deal and imposed new unilateral sanctions on Iran, plunging the country into the deepest recession of its history.
