Supreme Leader of Iran Calls U.S. and Israel “Untrustworthy”
Iran's regime was optimistically planning for months for its president Hassan Rouhani’s trip to New York regarding the annual U.N. General Assembly. Iran's regime was hoping that by Rouhani's trip and assembly's meetings, they would be able to widen the separation between the U.S. and E.U. countries. Rouhani and his chief apologist, Mohammad Javad Zarif, took every opportunity of interviewing with the free world's media to mislead the world's mindset and to point them in the wrong direction. Though after Rouhani's unsuccessful and futile trip to New York, Iran's regime is back playing its dangerous game and showing its hostile feature again.
Ali Khamenei, Iran's dictator, underlined the necessity for the country's interaction with different world states, except Israel and the U.S. he said recently that Washington and the European nations which have shown apparent animosity towards the Islamic republic, should not be trusted.
"The way for interaction and negotiation with any country, except the U.S. and the Zionist regime, is not closed but the countries which have hoisted a flag of hostility against the Islamic Republic, headed by the U.S. and some European countries, should not be trusted at all because they clearly show animosity towards Iran's regime," Khamenei said, addressing members of the Assembly of Experts in Tehran on Thursday.
"The Europeans step onto the scene seeming as a mediator and negotiate. They make contacts, speak for a long time, and make promises, but all in vain. They are neither able enough nor dominant enough nor have sufficient possibilities, yet their thoughts are the very same thoughts of the Americans," Khamenei continued.
Iran's dictator could not hide his wish for auctioning off Iran's wealth, willy-nilly for him to stay in power and said: "the economic problems of the European states are serious. Everyone is witnessing the political problems of Britain and France and therefore, we should use this opportunity."
On the other hand, Iran's Defense Minister Bri.Gen. Amir Hatami said on Wednesday: "Thank God, all pillars of the Islamic Republic are in consensus over the importance of enhancing the defense power, especially increasing Iran's missile power."
"The Armed Forces implement their plans, including missile tests, on a fully routine basis," General Hatami continued.
