8:58 am
iran say there are cover yes the supreme leader is leader in that address said that if iran is in a position to resist economic pressure and if iran is strong enough to negotiate with the united states on more equal footing and if the united states becomes more human towards iran then then iran may enter back into negotiations with the united states so there is a subtle nuance there but he said as far as the trumpet ministration is concerned there is no way that iran will ever negotiate with the current white house. and iran has unveiled a new generation of short range ballistic missiles the defense minister says the same missiles are known as beano the divine conquest is capable of hitting berth ground and sea targets iran is said to have conducted more than twenty missile tests since twenty fifteen. argentina's former president cristina. court corruption case the allegations. which claimed millions of dollars in bribes were
