"Tehran wouldn't hold talks with Washington on any level. US policy of maximum pressure will fail," Iran's Supreme Leader Sayyid Ali Hosseini Khamenei said Tuesday, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"Iranian officials will never talk to America .... this is part of their (U.S.) policy to put pressure on Iran ... their policy of maximum pressure will fail," Khamenei said as quoted by state TV.

The statement comes amid tough situation in the Gulf as the US has been calling on its allies to start patrolling the area to increase the security of their vessels in the face of what it has called the "Iranian threat".
