IRANIAN SUPREME LEADER’S SELF-CRITICISM ABOUT IRAN-USA RELATIONS IN 2015




Mustafa AY – TDO – 26.08.2018 Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei evaluated Iran’s moderate diplomatic relations with Washington in 2015-6, which led to 5+1 Nuclear Accord at the last stage. Khamenei said that he shouldn’t have permitted Iranian FM Javad Zarif’s talks with his US counterpart. As a rationale, western nations taking place in 5+1 Nuclear Accord didn’t fulfill their promises of investment in Iran even though USA lifted anti-Iranian sanctions in 2016, when Nuclear Accord was put into implementation, in addition to this, Khamenei blamed Washington on being hypocritical.
