Iran’s Khamenei says US, Britain, ‘Zionist entity’ can’t be trusted

ANKARA – Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Friday Tehran had no intention of cooperating on regional issues with its main enemies, the United States, “evil” Britain, and the “Zionist entity,” state TV reported.

Khamenei also accused Washington of not being committed to a nuclear deal reached between Tehran and six major powers, including the United States, in 2015 that aims to curb the country’s disputed nuclear programme. “America has continued its enmity towards Iran since (the 1979 Islamic) revolution … It is a huge mistake to trust evil Britain and the Great Satan (the United States),” Khamenei said in a speech broadcast live on state TV. “We will not cooperate with America over the regional crisis,” he said, adding that: “Their aims in the region are 180 degrees opposed to Iran’s.” “They use human rights, terrorism … as pretexts to avoid fulfilling their commitments,” Khamenei went on to say.
