Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei has warned the US that the Islamic Republic will not revisit nuclear talks in a terrifying threat to the world.
Khamenei said the attacks on the US bases in Iraq were successful and denounced the US as a "bully" amid World War 3 fears.
He said the missile bombardment was "slap" in the US' face, while commenting on the Islamic Republic's response prompt response to the US' killing of the country's top-ranking General Qasem Soleimani on Friday.
The leader said nuclear talks resumption with its "enemy" US are not possible – sparking fears it could develop its own arsenal of radioactive weapons.

Khamenei stressed that among the Republic's enemies are the US, Israel and the "arrogant system" in the West.
