Iran Not to Allow US Economic, Political, Cultural Influence

caspian international news agency؛ Addressing participants in the 8th International General Assembly of Islamic Radios and Televisions Union in Tehran on Monday, Ayatollah Khamenei referred to the recent nuclear agreement between Iran and the world powers, and said, “Washington imagined that it could use this agreement whose fate is not clear yet – as its final approval is not yet a definite fact neither in Iran nor in the US –  to find a way to influence in Iran; and this was their intention.”

But “we closed this path; and we will definitely keep it closed”, he underlined.

“We will not allow the US to influence (our) economy, or politics or culture. We will stand against such penetration with all our power – that, thanks God, is at a high level today,” Ayatollah Khamenei said.

Iran and the world powers reached a final agreement in Vienna on July 14 to end a 13-year-old nuclear standoff.

A week later, the UNSC unanimously endorsed a draft resolution turning into international law the JCPOA reached between Iran and the 5+1 (the US, Russia, China, Britain and France plus Germany) group of countries over the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

Now the US Congress and the Iranian parliament have less than 60 days to review the deal to approve or reject its practice.

In relevant remarks some days after the agreement, Ayatollah Khamenei underlined the nuclear agreement between Tehran and the six world powers would not change Iran’s policy towards the US.

“In any case the policy of the Iranian nation and the Islamic Republic system vis-a-vis the US will not change,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, addressing worshippers in the Eid al-Fitr (marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan) prayers in Tehran.

Iran’s Supreme Leader reiterated that whether the text of the nuclear agreement was ratified by the Iranian parliament or not, Iran would continue supporting the oppressed Palestinian nation, Yemen, Bahrain as well as the nations and governments of Syria and Iraq and the honest warriors of Lebanon and Palestine.

Ayatollah Khamenei reiterated that Iran’s policy towards the US would never change.

The Leader pointed to the boastful remarks of the US statesmen and officials in recent days, and said, “The US statesmen and stateswomen are inevitably making boastful remarks these days to resolve their internal problems, but their brags are not real.”

He said that Islamic Iran would never yield to excessive demands of the enemies while safeguarding its defensive and security capabilities
