A prominent hardline cleric in Iran warned on Friday against the Islamic republic resuming ties with the United States, and said any attempt to do so would prove futile.Icy ties between Tehran and world powers have thawed since President Hassan Rouhani, a moderate, defeated a pool of conservatives in last June's presidential election after vowing to engage constructively with the West.It was the first direct contact between the leaders of the two nations since diplomatic ties were severed after the US embassy hostage crisis in Tehran from 1979-1981 .Western nations and the country's arch-enemy Israel have long suspected Iran of covertly seeking nuclear weapons alongside its civilian programme, an allegation denied by Tehran.
