The Supreme Leader of Iran urged all Muslim-majority countries to forge a lasting alliance against the United States Thursday; adding the Islamic Republic will resist all “arrogant powers” as the US prepares to withdraw from its “disastrous” nuclear agreement.
According to Yahoo News, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei was speaking with Iranian state-run news when he slammed the US and its allies for “bullying” Muslim countries around the world; adding Iran had successfully “resisted” American aggression for years.
“The Iranian nation has successfully resisted bullying attempts by America and other arrogant powers and we will continue to resist… All Muslim nations should stand united against America and other enemies,” said the Supreme Leader.
“Such remarks are humiliation for Muslims … Unfortunately there is war in our region between Muslim countries. The backward governments of some Muslim countries are fighting with other countries,” he added.
Khamenei’s comments come just a day after French President Emmanuel Macron and President Trump announced they would pursue a “new deal” with Iran on their nuclear program.
