It seems the U.S. and Iran are at a diplomatic stalemate.
Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei slammed the U.S. in a speech Monday. He said his country wouldn't go to war with the U.S. but won't negotiate with it, either.
The comments come less than a week after the Trump administration reimposed some sanctions — the first to snap back since the U.S. pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.
But Khamenei said he's not interested in negotiating with a "sham government." He said the U.S. relies on money and power to get what it wants and then breaks its own promises.
