Leader Warns Aggressors of Harsh Consequences of Encounter with Iran, Also.Supreme Leader reaffirmed on Wednesday that the Iranian nation will not let any possible act of aggression against the country go unanswered.
“The Americans are supporting the massacre of the Yemeni people without any shame, but they accuse Iran”
“The Saudi government is busy killing innocent people and women and children in Yemen without any justification and only under the pretext that the Yemeni people do not accept a so-and-so person as the president, and the Americans are also supporting this monstrous crime” Ayatollah Khamenei said Wednesday while addressing a gathering of teachers in Tehran.
Ayatollah Khamenei further described the US government as the most “disgraced government in the world,” adding that one reason for this loss of honor is the explicit US support for the Saudi aggression against Yemen.
“The Americans are supporting the massacre of the Yemeni people without any shame, but they accuse Iran, which is after (sending) medical aid and food to the Yemeni people, of interfering in this country and sending weapons,” the Leader said.
“Ayatollah Khamenei said that Iran does not approve of “negotiations under the shadow of threat.””
Ayatollah Khamenei said the Yemenis do not need weapons from Iran because they have control of all military bases in their country, adding that the most urgent need of the Yemeni people is humanitarian aid of which they have been denied due to the blockade imposed on the country.
