“The team of negotiators appointed by Pres. @HassanRouhani has good, considerate & trusty members who work for the benefits of the country,” reads one tweet from Khamenei’s @khamenei_ir account.

He continued: “But I’m worried because the other side in the negotiations has a habit of deception & treason,” using the hashtags #IranTalks and #IranLetter.

The letter, he said, “is indicative of” a “collapse of political ethics” in the U.S, adding that countries cannot break agreements upon changing governments.
