IRGC Quds Force Commander Major General Qassem Soleimani has said Iranians will never submit to pressure and will not sit down for negotiations under threats.

Iran Press/Iran news: Speaking at the 23rd conference of Iran's police commanders and senior law enforcement officers on Monday, Major General Qassem Soleimani said: "Sanctions and economic pressures are aimed at bringing Iran to the negotiating table, so negotiation means surrendering [to the US] in this situation and Iranian will never accept this."

"United States aims to draw Iran to the negotiation table with increased economic pressure, but the Iranian nation will not give in," Major General Soleimani emphasized, Mehr News Agency reported.

The enemy wants to draw us to the negotiating table by imposing economic pressure. This kind of negotiation is just as good as giving in, but our people are vigilant and smart and believe that negotiating with the enemy in the current situation is a clear act of surrendering. We certainly will not bow to this ignominy,” IRGC's Quds Force Top commander said.

"Today, the US and its allies resort to relying on illegitimate governments in the region," Major General Soleimani said.

IRGC's Quds Force Top commander, referring to this fact that Iran's military has reached maturity, said: The more the enemies threaten Iran, the more costs they will have to pay.
