During a speech to government officials today, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters, discussed the ongoing nuclear negotiations and Iran’s plans for moving forward with or without a nuclear deal. 

Khamenei said that the direction of the nuclear talks is going well. Khamenei presumably meant Iran’s position in the nuclear talks is strong, since the talks are essentially stalled as the United States has been hesitant to remove the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps from its list of Foreign Terrorist Organizations.
