Iran: Don’t pin hope on sanctions relief, says Ali Khamenei

The Iranian regime’s Supreme Leader urged officials Saturday not to pin hopes for economic recovery on the sanctions relief from the deal reached with world powers on the nuclear program.

“The only solution to the country’s economic problems is to employ infinite domestic capacities, not to pin hopes on the lifting of sanctions. No expectations from the enemy,” Khamenei told army officers in Tehran.

Khamenei, who has the final say on all state matters, said American officials are “lying” when they say they are not seeking regime change in Iran.

“American officials tell our authorities at talks that they are not after regime change in Iran. They are lying because they won’t hesitate a moment if they had the ability to do so,” he said.
