Ali Honeypot: Office of the Iranian Supreme Leader / AP
Officials from the United States are first-class idiots. This was stated by Iran’s spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Wednesday, January 9.
“Some American politicians pretend that they’re crazy. Of course, I don’t agree with it, but they are first class idiots,” said Khamenei.
The spiritual leader noted that periodically, the Americans behave as if in the circus. “Recently, the us official said Iran should learn human rights from Saudi Arabia. How else to call such a person, not a clown?” he added.
The Ayatollah at the end of his speech, also pointed out that enemies of Iran “will be sent to hell”, as happened with the former Iraqi President Saddam Hussein. He was overthrown after the U.S. invasion of the country, and in 2006 executed by the verdict of the Iraqi Supreme court.
Relations between the US and Iran escalated after the beginning of may, 2018 Donald trump announced the unilateral withdrawal of Washington from a nuclear deal in 2015 and the renewal of the sanctions against Tehran. New package of restrictive measures against Iran came into force in November. In addition to the ban on oil exports, sanctions apply to industry, trade and operations of the Central Bank of the country in dollars.
Agreement on the terms of Iran’s nuclear program was signed in 2015 between the country and six States mediators (Russia, USA, Britain, China, France and Germany). The agreement imposes restrictions on the activity of Tehran in the nuclear field in exchange for the lifting of sanctions of the UN security Council, the US and the EU.
