TEHRAN, Sep. 21 (Press Shia Agency) – Leader of Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Khamenei in reaction to US president’s anti-Iran remarks at UN General Assembly said Trump’s remarks are out of anger and desperation not from the position of power.
Ayatollah Khamenei deemed US President Donald Trump’s Tuesday remarks against Iran “contemptible, offensive, obtuse, hectic, and all around untrue”, adding “those words were not said from a position of power, but out of anger, desperation and idiocy, since Americans are extremely upset that their old plans in the West Asian region have been thwarted due to the influential presence of the Islamic Republic of Iran.”
Stressing constructive interactions with the world without reliance on foreign powers, the Iranian Leader said “we had no issue with having nuclear negotiations, but we should have made sure that negotiations would not have come to the point where any wrong move by the other side would not be considered as a violation of the nuclear deal, but any measure from our side would.”
Ayatollah Khamenei deemed one of the main reasons for the West’s anger at the Iranian nation “the ever increasing advancement of the Islamic establishment’s influence in regional and international issues”, adding “US President’s address with those highly offensive and idiotic words better suited for a gangster, did not make the American nation proud. The American elites and intellectuals should feel ashamed for having Trump as their president, and they have indeed voiced their embarrassment.”
Leader went on to add that the fact that the realities in the Middle East today are different from what the US had in mind, as well as Iran’s presence and influence that has foiled the US and Israel’s plots, have all contributed to Trump’s anger and frustration.
“They [Americans] couldn’t advance their objectives in Lebanon. Things developed exactly contrary to what they wanted in Iraq, and even in Syria, despite the numerous crimes committed by US and its allies and their massive support to takfiri terrorists, the ISIL is now on the verge of collapse and other terrorist groups such as al Nusra have been isolated,” he said.
“The US stances do not reflect power and a higher position against Iran, but rather a complete failure, weakness and anger,” Ayatollah Khamenei stressed.
