TEHRAN (Iran News) – Ayatollah Khamenei said Iran will in the first place verify whether the sanctions are lifted in the right way and then return to its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal.
This is the definite policy of the Islamic Republic which all Iranian officials unanimously hold, the Leader said.
The Supreme Leader made the remarks on Sunday when he received a group of Air Force commanders and staff.
The event is held every year on the occasion of the historical meeting of the Islamic Republic Army Air Force personnel with Father of the Islamic Revolution and Founder of the Islamic Republic the late Imam Khomeini on February 8, 1979. The meeting had a significant role in giving new impetus to the Islamic Revolution.
With regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is held with full implementation of health protocols.
Ayatollah Khamenei said that the oath allegiance extended by Iran’s pre-Islamic Revolution Air Force (so-called Homafaran) to Imam Khomeini just 3 days before the victory of the revolution was a significant astonishing move and a main contributing factor in the victory of revolution which proved the US miscalculation.
The Supreme Leader underlined that continuation of the movement of the Revolution requires people’s persistent presence at the scene, non-stop work and struggle, union in expression among authorities, belief in the divine promise, and a surge in the components of national power in action.”
Ayatollah Khamenei described the recent scandalous events in the United States and the collapse of the administration of its former President Donald Trump as a sign of the decline of US credit, power, social and political order.
Mentioning recent remarks by the European and American authorities on US sanctions and the JCPOA, informally known as the Iran deal, he added, “Americans and Europeans have no right to set out conditions because they have violated their obligations under the JCOPA. The Islamic Republic of Iran is the party that can lay down conditions, because of its compliance with commitments.”
