Leader: US 'most evil' enemy of Iran, its virus aid offer strange

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has described the US “the most evil enemy of the nation”, saying the offer by the United States to help Iran fight the coronavirus outbreak is strange.

“Today, we have no less of enemies but the most evil enemy of the Iranian nation is America," the Leader said in a televised address on Sunday.

"US officials are mendacious, deceitful, shameless and greedy. They are all kinds of charlatans who speak like charlatans. They are cruel, merciless, and terrorist," he added.

Ayatollah Khamenei called US officials deceitful, saying they were lying as he touched on speculations about the United States has manufactured the extremely contagious disease.

The Leader praised the Iranian nation for remaining steadfast in the past decades despite Washington’s ongoing hostility, noting that the nation can overcome enemies through patience, bravery, and wisdom.

“Being patient means not to surrender,” he stressed.

Ayatollah Khamenei further urged officials to use the capacities of the country’s younger generation in order to be able to solve the current woes facing the nation. The Leader said, “Today, the country’s youth population is one of our power tools”.

It is crucial for Iran to grow powerful in all areas, particularly in the field of cyberspace, he added.

Elsewhere in his remarks, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to a recent offer by the US to help Iran rein in the outbreak of the coronavirus, saying, “Americans have several times said that are ready to help us with medicine and treatment. Their offer is strange since they themselves are facing frightening shortages in this regard”.
