Kerry told Iranians: 'Death to America' chants are 'pretty stupid'

Post by Admin on Fri Jul 24, 2015 11:41 pm

Secretary of State John Kerry says he told Iranian officials during the nuclear talks that "death to America" chants at public rallies in their country were "pretty stupid."
"I told them that their chants of 'death to America' and so forth are not helpful, and they're pretty stupid," Kerry said, lowering his voice, during a question-and-answer session at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington, where he sought to sell the controversial nuclear deal.

Critics have long seized on the chants, saying it shows Tehran is hostile to the United States and that the international community should not trust negotiations with them.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei in a speech last weekend called the U.S. "arrogant" days after a nuclear accord was announced. His speech was accompanied by "death to America" and "death to Israel" chants by the crowd.
Kerry had called Khamenei's remarks vowing to defy U.S. policies in the Middle East despite the deal "very disturbing" if they represented Iran's policy.
