(Persia Digest) - The Supreme Leader of Iran, in his first reaction to the US exit from the nuclear deal, stated: "You heard last night that the President of America made some silly and superficial comments. He had maybe more than 10 lies in his comments. He threatened the regime and the people, saying you're doing this and that. Mr. Trump, I tell you on behalf of the Iranian people: You cannot do a damn thing.”
Persia Digest reports that the Supreme Leader attended Farhangian University this morning and stated that: “We used to say that the United States’ problem is not the nuclear energy, and this is just an excuse; they said no! Now you see this is not the case? We accepted the deal, but the enmity with the Islamic Republic did not end. Now they are raising the issue of our presence in the region and the missile issue; if we accept this as well, they will start another issue.”
“The American President's silly behavior is not new to us. This behavior existed during the former presidents’ terms, and it had been the same in each period. The previous ones died and their bones rotted as well, but the Islamic Republic continues to exist. This man will also die and his body will be food for worms and still the Islamic Republic will continue on.” The Islamic Republic’s Supreme Leader continued.
“I said many times from the very first day that do not trust the United States, both at public and private meetings. I said that if you want to make the deal, get the necessary guarantee. One of the conditions I said was that the US President should sign. The esteemed officials worked hard and broke a sweat and well! they could not do it,” he reiterated.
“For two and a half years, we are doing this deal, and now this man says that I do not recognize it. Now, it is said that we will continue with the three European countries. I do not trust these three countries either. If you want to make a deal, get a practical guarantee, otherwise they will do the same as the United States did,” he added.
“If you can get a guarantee, that's okay! Of course I think it is unlikely. If you cannot get a definitive guarantee, JCPOA cannot continue. Officials in the country are put to a great test. Will they preserve the dignity of the nation, or not?” he stated.
