Addressing a large and fervent congregation of the people on Tehran University campus on Friday, Ayatollah Movahedi Kermani said, "The US, the Zionist regime and Saudi Arabia are mulling creation of a regional and international consensus against the Islamic Republic."
He reiterated that the enemies cannot achieve their goals because the Iranians have shown over the past decades that they will resist any kind of foreign interference.
In relevant remarks in mid-July 2017, Ayatollah Movahedi Kermani blasted Washington for defying its undertakings under the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and the world powers, stressing that the Iranian nation doesn’t trust the US at all.
"The people don’t trust the US and its allies even an iota and they are well aware of the US record of betrayal. As we see in the nuclear deal, the sanctions (against Iran) were due to be removed all together but they are increasing instead," he said.
He also warned Washington against any military aggression against Iran, stressing that the Iranian forces will leave no place safe for the US if the latter embarks on hostile action against Tehran.
