Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has called on all branches of the government to join forces to counter the negative impacts of brutal American sanctions against the Iranian nation.
He also went on to refer to the United States’ unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as an international agreement, saying, “The US administration performance in these years has led the country to be considered untrustworthy and unreliable around the world which does not meet any of its obligations”.
“In the current situation, friendly countries should develop their relations and cooperation in international community,” added the president.
