RNA – Speaking at a press conference on September 25th, Ayatollah Sayyed Ahmad ‎Khatami, the speaker of the Assembly of Experts of the Leadership, spoke about a two-day ‎long meeting of the Assembly of Experts the said, “Those speakers who addressed the ‎Assembly of Experts emphasized that negotiations with the Americans and Europe will not ‎solve the problems facing the country.” ‎

He added, “Over the past few days various meetings have been held. In one of these ‎meetings, Hujjat al-Islam Hoseyn Taeb [the head of the Intelligence Organization of the ‎Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps] was present in the Assembly of Experts and spoke to ‎the members of this assembly.”‎

Ayatollah Khatami continued, “In addition to the Intelligence Organization of the IRGC, ‎Ayatollah Sayyed Ebrahim Raeisi [the Chief Justice of Iran] also addressed the Assembly of ‎Experts.”‎
