According to the Supreme Leader, the United States has reached a “peak of arrogance” and is controlled by “entrepreneurs”, which makes the country “a manifestation of oppression that is hateful to the world”, he said.

Ali Khamenei also warned of Washington’s presence in the Middle East.

“The United States has dozens of military bases in countries surrounding Iran. If anything ever happens, these military bases will be useless for the Americans”, – he warned, recalling the growing tensions between the two countries after the assassination of General Qassem Soleimani.

Speaking about the peace plan of the Trump government, Khamenei called it “Satanic” and condemned the “Judaization” of Jerusalem.

It should be noted that today in Tehran there is an intention to demolish the historic tomb of Esther and Mordechai, located in the city of Hamadan, 300 km west of Tehran, in order to “take revenge” on the American plan and build a “consular office for Palestine” in that place.
