Iran's Leader: Giving in to US will make it impudent (UPDATED)

Tehran, Nov 2, IRNA – Supreme Leader of Iran's Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ail Khamenei said on Thursday, 'Giving in to the US will make it impudent; the only way is to resist.'

'The US animosity with Iran has blinded their calculation vision, leading them to repeat their mistakes,' said Ayatollah Khamenei in a meeting with thousands of school and university students in Tehran.

The meeting was held on the eve of the Iranian national Student Day which falls on November 4 this year.

Referring to the US frequent enmities with Iran the Leader added, 'They are using all the wickedness to destroy the fruit of the nuclear talks, i.e. the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).'

'The US is literally the nefarious and major enemy, and it is a fact established not through bias and pessimisms, but through experience, realization of issues, and field facts,' said Ayatollah Khamenei.

Commenting on the US President Donald Trump's calling Iranians a 'terrorist nation', the Leader said, 'These absurd words show that not only are the Americans an enemy of Iran's leader and government, but they also hold a grudge against Iranian people who have tirelessly resisted against them.'

Criticizing the ones who believe Iran should 'give in a little, so that the enmities abate', Ayatollah Khamenei said, 'Historical experiences indicate that the Americans don’t have any mercy even for those who put hope in the US.' He added former Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddeq turned to the US and trusted them to counter Britain, but it was the Americans who deposed him in a coup.'

Mosaddeq, who nationalized the oil industry in Iran, was the democratically elected Prime Minister of Iran from 1951 until August 1953, when his government was toppled by the Central Intelligence Agency and the United Kingdom's Secret Intelligence Service.
