Ayatollah Khamenei: Sanctions crime of US, European partners against Iran

Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has described the illegal sanctions the United States has imposed on Iran with the support of its European partners as a “bitter reality” and a “crime” against the nation.

Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks on Tuesday during a meeting of the Supreme Council for Economic Coordination among the three branches of the Iranian government.


The Leader said the Iranian nation has been subjected to such a crime for many years, but that the sanctions have been stepped up over the past three years under the current US administration.


Ayatollah Khamenei said there are two ways to end the restrictions, either by “neutralizing the sanctions and overcoming them” or having “the bans removed.”


“Of course, we tried the path of [having] the sanctions lifted once and negotiated for several years [to that effect], but it produced no results,” he added.


Referring to the other solution, the Leader said, “This path may have difficulties at the beginning, but there will be a positive outcome.”


Ayatollah Khamenei said, “We have a lot of potential and capabilities to render the sanctions ineffective, provided that we muster the will, strive and meet the challenges outright.”


“If we manage to overcome the sanctions through [our own] efforts and initiatives while holding firm against the problems, the other side will gradually lift the bans since it will see their ineffectiveness,” the Leader added.


The Leader further urged the people not to rely on foreigners for resolving domestic problems.


“The situation of the United States is not clear and the Europeans are constantly taking positions against Iran,” the Leader said. “They tell us not to interfere in the region, even though they are themselves interfering the most wrongly in the affairs of the region, While Britain and France possess destructive nuclear missiles and Germany is also on this path, they tell us not to have missiles.”
