Iran’s Supreme Leader has once again emphasized his anti-American stance, saying he will not allow the United States to use the nuclear agreement to spread its influence in the country.
Ayatollah Khamenei said on Monday August 17 that the U.S. is trying to use the nuclear agreement to spread its influence in Iran and the Middle East, and that Islamic Republic will use “all its might” to stop it.
He added that the fate of the nuclear agreement remains under question, saying: “It is not certain whether it would be approved here [in Iran] or there [in the U.S.]”.
The opponents of the nuclear agreement in Iran are insisting that the agreement needs approval from Parliament, while the administration has resisted taking the agreement to Parliament.
Ayatollah Khamenei stressed: “We will not allow U.S. economic, political or cultural influence in the country.”
He added that the Islamic Republic will persist in its policies in the region; it will resist against dissolution of Iraq and Syria and support “those who fight against Israel”.
