Ayatollah Khamenei

Europe should avoid meddling into matters of our defense: Ayatollah Khamenei

A group of outstanding university students and Olympiad winners met with the Leader of the Revolution this morning, October 18, 2017.

In a meeting with young academic elites, this morning, the Leader of the Revolution said, "We managed to stop the dominance of the US; furthermore, despite animosity of the US, we became powerful and progressed."

Commenting on Trump's irrational behavior towards Iran, the Supreme leader said, "The President of the United States displays nonsense; however, this should not lead us to ignore the mischief of the US regime. Everyone should be certain that the US will, once again, be beaten and defeated by the Iranian nation."


He added: The United States is an international Zionist agent, the creator of the ISIS terrorist group, as well as takfiri terrorist fronts. Therefore, do you expect the US president not to be angry at IRGC that stands against ISIS? They are angry, because today the Islamic Republic of Iran has managed to spoil their plots in Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, etc.

Ayatollah Khamenei went on to say, "JCPOA serves their interests; but, we will not tear up the deal before the other party does: if they tear up JCPOA, we shred it."

The Leader of the Islamic revolution touched on Europe's decision to maintain the JPOA stating: "Europe’s emphasis on maintaining the nuclear agreement (JCPOA) is simply not enough."

He went on to offer a strategy: First, Europe must oppose moves by the US; second, Europe must avoid intruding into our defensive affairs. If they ask questions like, "why Iran is active in the region?"--well, it is none of their business. Or if they ask, "why does Iran have missiles?"--then, our response is, "why do they have missiles and nuclear weapons?"

In a final statement, Ayatollah Khamenei warned, "We won't accept Europeans singing along to the American's coercive words."
