At this meeting Imam Khamenei slammed attempts of USA to breach the JCPOA.
Speaking at a graduation ceremony of Iran's police cadets in Tehran on Sunday, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the USA impudence in case of the nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, and said Washington has made an evil move on JCPOA every single day. He said, "Every day the US government exposes a new side of its viciousness, thus proving Imam Khomeini's words true: The US government is the Great Satan". Nevertheless, US officials stated that Washington will announce the continuation of sanctions relief for Iran in accordance with the deal.
"Iranian officials finally made a decision to negotiate [the country's nuclear program] and even ignore part of their rights so that the sanctions are removed", Ayatollah Khamenei noted.
"As we see despite all deals and multiple talks on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the U.S. attitude towards talks and their outcomes are totally oppressive, hounding and cruel, " Khamenei added. They are the liars as they allow the fulfillment of their own illegitimate interests at any cost.
"The Iranian nation is standing firmly, and any wrong move by the hegemonic system concerning the JCPOA would receive the Islamic Republic's reaction", the Leader stressed. The United States imposed unilateral sanctions after saying the missile tests violated a U.N. resolution, which endorsed the nuclear deal and called upon Tehran not to undertake activities related to ballistic missiles capable of delivering nuclear weapons, including launches using such technology.
