In a speech marking the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, he said Iran still had sharp differences with the US, above all over the Middle East.
Iran would continue to back Syria, Iraq, the Palestinians and "oppressed people" in Yemen and Bahrain, he said.
The deal on Iran's nuclear programme came after years of negotiations writes BBC but we at SDR thinks its more like shameful years of utter shameful submission to a still aggressive Iran!
The white Hose and official media reports that the agreement limits Iran's nuclear activities for at least 10 years in exchange for the gradual lifting of sanctions which have hampered the country's economy. However most security related professionals we know inclusive Arabs (and its many )think its and best direct madness.!
All weaned to do is hear what was said after the so called agreement:
"Whether the [nuclear] deal is approved or disapproved, we will never stop supporting our friends in the region and the people of Palestine, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, Bahrain and Lebanon," Ayatollah Khamenei said.
"Even after this deal our policy towards the arrogant US will not change."
And naturally the same old story at end …
The supreme leader also denied that Iran was intending to create a nuclear bomb.
Why should anyone believe such by a man who hates us?
Sickening rhetorics at best is no western politician listening ?
Even if we present the words utterly clear in English ?
"The Americans say they stopped Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon," he said in his speech at the Mosala mosque in Tehran.
"They know it's not true. We had a fatwa [religious ruling] declaring nuclear weapons to be religiously forbidden under Islamic law. It had nothing to do with the nuclear talks.
"We have repeatedly said we don't negotiate with the US on regional or international affairs;
not even on bilateral issues.
"There are some exceptions like the nuclear programme that we negotiated with Americans to serve our interests... US policies in the region are diametrically opposed with Iran's policies." The supreme leader said it was now necessary for Iranian politicians to scrutinise the nuclear agreement and make sure that Iran's national interests were being preserved.
Fact remains that:
Ayatollah Khamenei's views are in contrast to the acclaim that the accord has received from President Hassan Rouhani and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. This proves that there is one Iranians say one thing when they want something and another when the back is turned!
