Iran’s Supreme Leader yesterday rejected a renewed offer of dialogue with Washington from President Obama, and accused the US of continuing to plot against Tehran while offering peace.

Ayatollah Ali Khamenei accused Mr Obama of arrogance for using a Persian new year message to repeat his offer of talks — intended to defuse mounting international concern that Iran is building a nuclear bomb.

“You cannot talk about peace and friendship, and at the same time plot and plan sedition, and think that you can hurt the regime of the Islamic Republic of Iran,” said Ayatollah Khamenei in an address on state television to mark Nowruz, the Persian new year.

How can a person spit on another and asked him to be his friend? No one has heard of such a method. How does it work? It doesn't. This is just another empty gesture by US government and meant to form public opinion that US is friendly to Iran and Iran is hateful to US. They can't first pass the US sanctions against Iran then say we like to talk. They should have held the sanctions, ask Iran to meet with them then see what to do next.

No one should buy the political game of talks to form their public opinions. President Obama, (similar to President Ahmadinejad's Iran policy), doesn't have the power to change US policy.
