counterpart during negotiations that led to a 2015 international nuclear agreement, Reuters reported.International sanctions on Iran were lifted when the pact with world powers came into force in 2016, but the expected level of foreign investment to help revive the economy has never materialized.

sanctions in stages.Khamenei, who rarely admits in public to making errors, said he had done just that over the nuclear talks.

“With the issue of the nuclear negotiations, I made a mistake in permitting our foreign minister to speak with them.

It was a loss for us,” he said.The comments made by Khamenei, the highest authority in the country, were tweeted on Wednesday by the Khat-e Hezbollah newspaper, a weekly affiliated with his official website.Khamenei made the remarks on Monday, but the newspaper said it was now quoting them due to inaccurate accounts published previously by other media.
