The US has exhibited various evil and malicious behaviors in connection with the JCPOA, the Leader deplored, saying such a conduct affirms the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini's notion that the US is "the great Satan".

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei ‎said that Iran will react to any "wrong move" of the United States on nuclear deal between Tehran and the six world powers, which came into force a year ago.

"The country's officials reached the conclusion that they should negotiate and ignore some of their rights, so that, sanctions [imposed on Iran on account of its nuclear program] would be removed. but today, we see that despite all agreements and promises and many discussions during [nuclear] negotiations, America treats these negotiations and their outcome in a totally oppressive and bullying manner", the Leader noted.

Iran said last month it could abandon the nuclear agreement "within hours" if the United States imposes any new penalties, after Washington ordered sanctions over Tehran's ballistic missile tests.

"The Americans should know the Iranian nation will stand on its honourable and powerful stances", he noted, adding that the country will not back off when it comes to national interests.

Blasting the USA officials for accusing Iran of telling lies, the Leader said, "You are the ones who lie; liars are those who don't want to see the prosperity of any nation and believe it is right to secure one's illegitimate interests by any means".

"The nation of Iran is standing firm and any wrong move... will face a reaction by the Islamic republic", said Khamenei.
