(MENAFN) As said by a West Asia specialist, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei in his Saturday comments set an internal and external policy roadmap, mainly with regard to the United States, for officials and the enormous Iranian country, as conciliation does not thwarl US extortion.
Talking to IRNA on Sunday, Hassan Hanizadeh declared that the Leader strongly criticized the U.S. intimidating measures, calling them as a try by the U.S. to cross the Iranian country's red lines.
“The Leader of the Islamic Revolution's emphasis on the futility of appeasement with the U.S. demonstrates his correct and intellectual grasp of U.S. and Western policies, as well as the U.S. long-term aims of dominating regional states,” he added.
He further stressed that one of the plans that the U.S. has constantly wanted to place on the table is failing Iran's army and deterrence skills, which has nothing to do with the topic of atomic discussions.
The expert also said that “one example of the Leader's words was the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and the 5+1 countries, which, despite having signed such an agreement, the U.S. withdrew from in 2018. It slapped nearly 1,700 sanctions against Iran until 2020.”
“The U.S. assassination of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, the former head of the Quds Force, demonstrated that diplomacy, appeasement, and adherence to U.S. goals do not stop the U.S. from acting aggressively,” Hanizadeh went on to underline.
He continued that “Iran's internal and national stability depends on internal unity and integration to combat these demands, and this is a definite policy, as evidenced by the U.S.
excessive demands in recent years that have revealed, under a variety of pretexts, that the U.S. policies cannot be trusted.”
