Imam Khamenei: Don’t Trust US, It’s behind Middle East Insecurity
The Leader of the Islamic Revolution His Eminence Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei confirmed that the US is responsible for instability in the Middle East.
Addressing a gathering of high-ranking Iranian officials, Imam Khamenei referred to Washington's role in the establishment and military support of the Daesh terrorist group.
Imam Khamenei stressed that "the claims of establishing an anti-Daesh coalition are lies." He added that the US is only against an "uncontrolled Daesh" and will oppose anybody who tries to really destroy the Takfiri terrorists.
He also noted that the recent accusations by US President Donald Trump over Iran supporting terrorism were preposterous.
"It is really ridiculous for the US, standing next to the tribal and medieval Saudis, to talk about human rights in a place which has no notion of democracy, and to accuse Iran which is the emblem of democracy," the Leader stressed.
Ayatollah Khamenei also broached the subject of the US's increased saber-rattling and further sanctions following Iran's recent presidential election.
"In the face of such enmities, a new atmosphere of cooperation and hard work must be established for reaching our common goal which is the country's progress and the promotion of the Islamic Republic," he stated.
Speaking about Iran's nuclear deal with the P5+1 group of countries in 2015, Imam Khamenei called on Iranian officials to carefully monitor the other parties to see if they are honoring their side of the agreement.
The Leader hailed efforts by the Iranian negotiating team, particularly Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, stressing that the officials who were in charge of negotiating the accord are entirely trustworthy but some of the other parties should not have been trusted.
"Some of the problems with the US are essentially unresolvable as the US's problem with us has nothing to do with nuclear energy or human rights, their problem is with the principle of the Islamic Republic," added the Leader.
He stated that the US cannot be trusted as it is the embodiment of terrorism itself and supports regimes such as Israel which came to be through terrorism and oppression.
"The US must know that the Islamic Republic will not back down from positions such as battling oppression and defending Palestine and will spare no efforts towards defending the people's rights," he added.
