Iran's Supreme Leader Vows a Strong Response Against Attempts to Derail JCPOA

According to Khamenei, Iran will respond to "every wrong step by the United States regarding the nuclear deal".

Iran would react strongly to any "wrong move" by the United States on Tehran's nuclear deal, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, after President Donald Trump accused Iran of violating the "spirit" of the agreement.

While Iranian officials made a decision to hold nuclear negotiations and even retreat from part of the country's rights to have the sanctions lifted, the U.S. is behaving in a cruel, bullying and forceful manner despite all of those negotiations, commitments, Imam Khamenei said.

Speaking at the graduation ceremony at the Iran's Police Academy, Khamenei said that the Iranian nation "stands firmly on its own feet" and is capable of responding to hostile actions of any state.

He also noted that the reason behind insecurity in the Middle East can be traced back to the "wicked and mischievous interventions" by the United States.

"The United States of America's regime is truly the most vicious of devils", Ayatollah Khamenei added.

His comments came after U.S. President Donald Trump said on Thursday that Iran was violating "the spirit" of the 2015 deal under which Tehran got sanctions relief in return for curbing its nuclear programme.
