‘US, Israel enmity toward Iran never waned’
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the enmity of the US and the Israeli regime toward Iran has never subsided.
“Since the beginning of the  Revolution to this day, the enmity of the Zionists and the Americans has not waned; and this reality should never slip the minds of [Iranian] authorities,” Ayatollah Khamenei said in a Wednesday meeting with President Hassan Rouhani and Cabinet members.
Wednesday marks the third day of the National Government Week.
The Leader said concluding the nuclear negotiations was “one of the very important tasks” accomplished by the administration, adding, however, that the likelihood of neglecting the goals of enemies in the nuclear issue is a concern.
“Of course, methods of enmity and doing harm may change and renew; however, all ‘political, economic, and cultural’ authorities must be vigilant not to play into the hands of the enemy under any circumstances and so that their (the authorities’) decisions do not willingly or unwillingly help implement the package envisaged by the enemies,” the Leader pointed out.
“If we abandon our vigilance, we will suddenly find the enemy having infiltrated in certain areas and being engaged in dangerous cultural, economic and political activities; therefore, we must be completely careful,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
Before the Leader made the remarks, President Rouhani delivered a brief report on the performance of his administration during its two years in office.
First Vice President Es’haq Jahangiri and several ministers also delivered remarks.
Iran and the P5+1 group – the United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany – reached an agreement dubbed the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in the Austrian capital, Vienna, on July 14.
The JCPOA turned into international law when the UN Security Council on July 20 unanimously approved a resolution to endorse it.
