Kerry Claims ‘Great Respect’ for ‘Religious Importance’ of Khamenei’s Fatwa

While addressing the press during a visit to Egypt, Secretary of State John Kerry spoke about the ongoing negotiations with Iran over that country’s nuclear programs. As he and President Obama have several times in the past, Kerry cited a report that Iran’s “Supreme Leader” issued a “fatwa” against the development of nuclear weapons by Iran, a fatwa that remains unpublished according to a recent article by U.S. News. Nevertheless, Kerry said that the United States has “great respect – great respect – for the religious importance of a fatwa.”
