Iran leader Khamenei warns against U.S. 'wrong move' on nuclear deal
From Reuters - September 17, 2017

DUBAI (Reuters) - Iran would react strongly to any wrong move by the United States on Tehrans nuclear deal, Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said, after President Donald Trump accused Iran of violating the spirit of the agreement.

The Iranian nation is standing firm and any wrong move by the domineering regime regarding the (nuclear accord) will face the reaction of the Islamic Republic, state television quoted Ayatollah Khamenei as saying on Sunday.

Washington extended some sanctions relief for Iran on Thursday under Tehrans 2015 deal with world powers but said it had yet to decide whether to maintain the agreement.

Trump, who must make a decision by mid-October, said Iran was violating the spirit of the deal under which it got sanctions relief in return for curbing its nuclear program.

Today, despite all the commitments and discussions in the negotiations, Americas attitude toward these negotiations and their outcome is completely unjust and amounts to bullying, Khamenei said.
