Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Imam Khamenei: Wrecking JCPOA proves US hostility to Iranian nation
Leader of Islamic Ummah and Oppressed Imam Ayatollah Khamenei said Thu. that the US is doing its utmost to ruin the outcome of nuclear negotiations, which proves Washington’s deep antagonism toward the Iranian nation.
On the eve of the National Day in the Fight Against Global Arrogance, thousands of students from all over the nation met with Ayatollah Khamenei on Thursday morning, November 2, 2017. The National Day in the Fight Against Global Arrogance is celebrated every year, on the anniversary of the November 4th takeover of the US embassy in Tehran 1979.
During the meeting, Ayatollah Khamenei highlighted the need for “knowing the enemy” as the main condition for the realization of the goals of the Islamic establishment and the Iranian nation, adding “the US, in the true sense of the word, is our main sinister enemy, and this fact is not based on prejudice or a pessimistic point of view, but rather it stems from experience, a proper understanding of issues, and the actual realities of the world.”
Iran’s Leader referred to the recent remarks by US President Trump in which he called Iran a terrorist nation, adding “such foolish words reveal that the Americans are not only an enemy to the leadership and government of Iran, but they are hostile to the very existence of a tireless nation that has for decades stood against them.”
Ayatollah Khamenei then recalled the words of an American official who had threatened to eradicate the roots of the Iranian nation, saying “they are unable to comprehend the fact that a nation like Iran with such a rich history and culture cannot be eradicated.”
He went on to stress that Washington’s deep hostility and hatred for the Iranian nation has blinded the calculating eyes of the Americans, causing them to repeat their past mistakes.
The Leader then criticized those who sought compromise with the US as a way to lessen their hostility against Iran, adding “historical experiences such as the coup against Dr. Mosaddegh have proved to us that the Americans show no mercy even to those that have put their trust in them.”
“Mosaddegh sought out Americans and put his trust in them in order to fight against the British, but in the end it was the Americans who orchestrated a military coup against him and overthrew him,” he added.
“And now they [Americans] are doing their utmost to ruin the outcome of the nuclear negotiations, which is the JCPOA,” he stressed.
Ayatollah Khamenei concluded that any compromise with Americans would make them all the more impudent, stressing that the only true path for the Iranian nation is to stand against the US arrogance.
