Iran won't bow to United States 'bullying' on nuclear deal

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Sunday warned against any "wrong" move by the USA which aims at breaching Iran's 2015 nuclear deal.

The US has exhibited various evil and malicious behaviors in connection with the JCPOA, the Leader deplored, saying such a conduct affirms the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini's notion that the US is "the great Satan".

"The Iranian regime stands firm", Khamenei stressed.

Trump, who must make a decision by mid-October, said Iran was violating "the spirit" of the deal under which it got sanctions relief in return for curbing its nuclear programme.

After years of tension with the West, Iran struck a deal with Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States plus Germany in July 2015, under which Iran agreed to limit its uranium-enrichment activities in return for the lifting of western and worldwide sanctions.

However, the Leader added, "today we see that despite all the agreements, commitments, and extensive negotiations, the U.S. behaviour towards the talks and their results is totally cruel and coercive".

"The corrupt, lying, deceitful United States officials insolently accuse the nation of Iran... of lying, whereas the nation of Iran has acted honestly and will continue on this path until the end in an honest manner", said Khamenei.

He added: The enemies must know that if bullying works elsewhere in the world, it won't ever work for the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Ayatollah Khamenei then noted that the increasing hostility toward Iran was because the Iranian nation "is a source of inspiration for other nations", adding, "The corrupt, lying and dishonest officials of America brazenly accuse the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic establishment of lying, while the Iranian nation moves honestly and will honestly continue on this path up to the end".
