Leader: US deception hindering Iran trade
Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei says the US has resorted to “deception” to obstruct international trade with Iran despite a nuclear agreement.
“On paper, the Americans say banks can trade with Iran but in practice they act in such an Iranophobic way that no trade can take place with Iran,” the Leader told a group of Iranian workers in Tehran Wednesday.
“An American official has said the bulk of sanctions has been maintained so that the investors are scared and do not come here,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.
“The Americans are engaged in obstruction and deception. Then, they claim that we are pessimistic.”
