Iranians have every right to distrust US: Analyst

Press TV’s Newsroom Director Hamid Reza Emadi says the Iranian nation has every right to distrust the US due to the long track record of Washington’s hostile policies against the country.

In a Saturday debate show at Press TV, Emadi pointed to the US-led 1953 coup against the popular government of Prime Minister Mohammad Mosaddeq, support for the former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein in the eight-year Iran-Iraq war, the 1988 missile attack on an Iranian passenger airliner and the brutal sanctions against the Iranian nation as some instances of US hostility towards Iran.

“There is every reason why Iran cannot and should not trust the United States of America,” he pointed out.

Emadi lashed out at Washington for its “hypocrisy” in the course of nuclear talks with Iran and noted that US officials, including Undersecretary of State Wendy Sherman, continue to make paradoxical and insulting statements “just to appease the Israeli lobbies under the Zionists who are funding US Congress members.”

“The United States does not respect any country on planet earth. The United States easily violates international law since drones assassinate people in other countries. It doesn’t have any respect for the territorial integrity of other countries,” the analyst pointed out.

On Saturday, Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei said American officials are lying when they say they are not pursuing regime change in Iran.

The Leader emphasized that compromise with arrogant powers will lead to nowhere and stated that interventionist powers seek to put autocratic puppets at the helm.
