BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:10 P.M.) – As long as America continues its wickedness, the Iranian nation will not abandon ‘Death to America,’ ” Khomeini reportedly said during the 40th commemoration of the Islamic Revolution of 1979.
“‘Death to America’ means death to Trump, [National Security Adviser] John Bolton, and [Secretary of State Mike] Pompeo. It means death to American rulers,” Khamenei said.
“I recommend that one should not trust the Europeans just as the Americans,” Khamenei said. “We don’t say, don’t have contacts with them, but it’s an issue of trust.”
His comments follow a report last month detailing the country’s efforts to begin enrichment of uranium fuel, a move that would violate the agreement.
“Preliminary activities for designing modern 20 percent [enriched uranium] fuel have begun,” the country’s nuclear chief said last month. “We have made such progress in nuclear science and industry that, instead of reverse-engineering and the use of designs by others, we can design new fuel ourselves.”
