Selin ATAY-TDO-Iranian leader Ali Khamenei has considered the plan announced by US President Donald Trump as "stupid."
During a speech in Tehran, the capital, to mark the 41st anniversary of the Iranian Revolution, Khamenei made assessments of the US's so-called peace plan.
U.S. President Donald Trump's plan for peace in the Middle East is doomed to failure, the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei told Iranian state television on Wednesday.
"This deal of the century will die before Trump does," Khamenei said, adding that the plan was "stupid but also insidious."
Stressing that it was "unacceptable" for the United States to take decisions on behalf of the Palestinians, "The Americans and the Zionists agreed on the issue that had nothing to do with them. Palestine belongs to the Palestinians. Who are you to make decisions about Palestine? " Khamenei said.
Khamenei called on Palestinians and the whole Muslim community, to oppose the plan, and said Iran will support Palestinian armed groups as much as it can.
"We believe that Palestinian armed organizations will stand and continue resistance and the Islamic Republic sees supporting Palestinian groups as its duty," Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said.
Khamenei also made comments about general elections in Iran on February 21. "Some may not like me. If they like Iran, they should go to the polls to contribute to the country's security and the solution of the problems." he said.
