Leader of Islamic Ummah Imam Khamenei Stresses Iran’s Continued Struggle against US after Talks
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei underlined in important remarks on Saturday night that the country would not change its foreign policy approach towards the US irrespective of the results of the ongoing nuclear negotiations between the two sides.
Addressing a Q & A meeting with Iranian university students in Tehran a few hours ago, Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said in response to the question if Iran would give up campaign against the arrogant powers following a nuclear deal that struggle and campaign against conceited powers is a Quranic lesson and order that would never be defied by Iran.
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei said Iran could never stop the struggle against the arrogant powers and still be called the Islamic Republic.
“Campaign against the arrogant powers and hegemonic system is one of the tenets and essence of the revolution,” Supreme Leader said, and cautioned, “We would not be subordinate to the Quran if we stop campaign against the arrogance.”
And the Supreme leader added that “the US is the complete instance of arrogance”.
“Get yourselves ready for continuing campaign against the arrogance,”Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei reiterated.
His Eminence remarks came as Tehran and the six world powers are in final days of marathon talks to strike a nuclear deal and after Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif complained that change in the stances of the G5+1 and the West’s excessive demands have prevented attainment of a nuclear deal.
Zarif then called on the US-led Western powers to make up their minds and choose between striking a final deal and keeping the sanctions in place.
The Supreme Leader further stated that the US and reactionary Arab regimes in their confidential meetings acknowledge Iran’s extraordinary spiritual clout in the region, and said “the Saudis have been pounding Yemen for (over) 100 days in revenge for this very influence”.
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei blasted the UN Security Council for keeping mum on the Saudis’ massacre in Yemen in the last several months, and said they have only issued a “shameless resolution”.
“The UN Security Council just issued one of the most shameless resolutions ever, which condemned the ones who are bombed instead of those who drop the bombs,” the Iranian Supreme Leader lamented.
Saudi Arabia has been striking Yemen for 108 days now to restore power to fugitive president Mansour Hadi, a close ally of Riyadh.
Hadi stepped down in January and refused to reconsider the decision despite calls by Ansarullah revolutionaries of the Houthi movement.
Despite Riyadh’s claims that it is bombing the positions of the Ansarullah fighters, Saudi warplanes are flattening residential areas and civilian infrastructures.
The Monarchy’s attacks have so far claimed the lives of at least 5,051 civilians, mostly women and children.
