Leader of the Islamic Revolution in Iran, Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei has slammed US President Donald Trump’s “foolish” remarks against Iranian people.
While meeting a large group of Iranian students ahead of the November 4 ceremonies marking National Day of Fight against Global Arrogance, Imam Khamenei said Trump’s stance a clear sign of Washington’s hostility towards the entire Iranian nation.
“As you witnessed recently, the head of US administration said the Iranian nation is a ‘terrorist nation.’ You see how foolish this attitude is? He calls a nation terrorist. He does not say the leader is terrorist; he does not say the government is terrorist; he says the Iranian nation is terrorist,” the Leader said.
“Is it not hostility?” Imam Khamenei asked.
“This foolish comment indicates that not only are the Americans the enemies of the Iranian leadership and government, they also show hostility and enmity towards the very existence of a nation that stands against them tirelessly,” he added.
Meanwhile, the Leader underlined the need for identifying the enemy as the main condition for achieving national objectives.
“The US is, in the real sense of the word, the main evil enemy. This reality stems from true understanding of issues and the facts on the ground, not from prejudice and pessimism.”
Americans, his eminence added, “are not capable of understanding the fact that a nation with such a rich history and culture cannot be eradicated.”
