Khamenei says wants friendly relations with US

World Bulletin / News Desk

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Wednesday Tehran wanted friendly ties with all countries, including the United States, on the day Iran begins a new round of talks with world powers on its disputed nuclear programme.

"We want to have friendly relations with all nations, even the United States," he told an audience of Basij militiamen. "We are not hostile to the American nation. They are like other nations in the world," he said.

"Death to America," the militiamen chanted in response.

Obviously there is some need for education (and probably preparation) of these militiamen.... shouting "death to America" after a speech by their highest leader who offered his friendship to America, thus in fact stating that such chantings are out-of-line, looks a bit silly........ to say the least!Perhaps the militiamen were not totally awake yet.........
